Willie Nelson Teams With Ryan Adams
Adams is producing Willie's new album, due out October 31. The Cardinals will be the backing band and Willie will sing Leonard Cohen, Gram Parsons, Grateful Dead, the standard Amazing Grace and more, though not apparently any songs by Adams himself. Sounds foolproof, though Willie at 73 is clearly on the downside of his vocal abilities and has seemed shakier when performing live lately. He's still got some greatness left in him though.
