Willie nelson Announces New Album and Tour

Heroes will be in stores May 15th
Willie Nelson has been hard at work in the recording studios finishing up the tracks on his new album Heroes that is set to be released on May 15th. He has had several popular musicians contribute to this album across multiple music genres. Following the completion of this new album Willie nelson will be hitting the road for a new tour, dates can be located below.
The Heroes album is Willie Nelson’s first release under Legacy Recordings and has several country classics along with some new songs. A few of the artist being featured on this album include Cheryl Crow, merle haggard, Kris Kristofferson, Jamie Johnson and none other than Snoop Dogg. Not such a surprise, it was bound to happen Snoop Dogg and Willie nelson have been together on numerous occasions, I wonder if the connection is all in the party favors.
Lukas and Micah, Willie Nelson’s sons will also be featured on the Heroes album. This isn’t the first time that Willie has played music professionally with his sons. In fact they performed many concerts together and the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, both Lukas and Micah are talented songwriters and musicians.
Willie nelson tour will be beginning in just a couple of weeks on April 15th in Odessa Texas. It’ll be a short tour with the last tour date being on June 15th in Atlanta Georgia. Even though this tour is only lasting from April 15th to June 15th a lot of shows have been booked into it, giving Willie nelson minimal time off in between shows. Tickets can be bought online through the Willie Nelson website or at Ticket master.
