Country star Willie Nelson has announced a new partnership with Legacy Recording and a new album entitled Heroes. Comprised of recently composed original songs as well as reworked classic tracks, the Buddy Cannon-produced Heroes will be released on May 15.
Nelson’s backing band on Heroes, The “Roll Me Up” Band, includes a number of well-versed musicians-Kevin “Swine” Grantt (bass), Bobby Terry (electric guitar, acoustic guitar), Jim “Moose” Brown (piano, Wurlitzer, B-3 organ), Mike Johnson (steel guitar), Tony Creasman (drums), Mickey Raphael (harmonica) and Lukas Nelson (electric guitar).
A few notable (if not surprising) musical guest appearances include Snoop Dogg, Sheryl Crow, Kris Kristofferson and Nelson’s sons Lukas and Micah. Check out the tracklist for Heroes below.
