Willie Nelson Releases Ray Price Tribute Album ‘For The Good Times’
There's only one Willie Nelson.
There was only one Ray Price.
And on his new album For The Good Times: A Tribute To Ray Price Willie does his old friend proud with absolutely brilliant interpretations of Ray Price classic's.
From the opening track 'Heartaches By The Number', this album is pure Willie and pure Ray. With the Time Jumpers adding their flavor to several tracks, this album will go down as one of Willie's finest (and that's saying something!).
All the Ray Price classic's are re-imagined here by the Red Headed Stranger. In addition to the above mentioned opening song, you'll hear Willie on 'Faded Love', 'City Lights', 'Make The World Go Away', Crazy Arms' and many more.
There's an updated version of Willie's self-penned 'Night Life' and Willie concludes the album with his heartfelt version of the Kris Kristofferson written Ray Price standard 'For The Good Times'.
This album is guaranteed to do at least two things:
1) Delight Willie fans around the world. Our boy has nailed it once again. At 80+ years old, it seems (and I hope!) there's no end in sight for this Texas balladeer.
and 2) Ray Price fans will be more than satisfied with Willie's wonderful treatment of Ray's ever-living country classic's. You can feel, in every song, the friendship and respect Willie has for Ray and his music.
One piece of advice: Don't just download or get one song from the album. This album isn't a snack, it's a buffet.
