Willie Nelson announces ‘The Willie Nelson Family’album
Willie Nelson will release The Willie Nelson Family album on November 19. Nelson shared a re-recorded version of his song “Family Bible” that is one of 12-tracks on the forthcoming release.
The record features Nelson singing and playing his guitar Trigger while accompanied by his musical family members, sister Bobbie Nelson (piano), sons Lukas Nelson (acoustic guitar, electric guitar, lead vocals, background vocals) and Micah Nelson (drums, bass, background vocals) and daughters Paula Nelson (background vocals) and Amy Nelson (background vocals).
“Family Bible,” one of Willie’s earliest original songs, was written in 1957 and is among several of his compositions recorded for the new album. Among the other songs making up the tracklist are covers of Hank Williams’ “I Saw The Light,” Kris Kristofferson’s “Why Me,” the traditional hymn “In The Garden,” and with Lukas singing lead, George Harrison’s “All Things Must Pass” and A.P. Carter’s “Keep It On The Sunnyside.”
