11 Brand New Songs On Vinyl LP!
One Of America's Most Iconic Songwriters - Like No One Else!
Last Man Standing, comprised entirely of songs newly-penned by Willie Nelson
(and longtime collaborator and producer Buddy Cannon), is the worthy successor
to Willieís Godís Problem Child, which showcased seven Nelson-Cannon
compositions and debuted at #1 on the Country charts. Willie and Buddy have been
working together since 2008 with Cannon producing more than a dozen of Willieís
albums. The album arrives just in time for the iconic singer/songwriter's 85th
birthday, which is April 29, 2018.
The songwriting duo deploys a unique strategy of shared composition, beginning
with back-and-forth text messaging of lyrics with the melodies. On Last Man
Standing, Nelson and Cannonís unorthodox approach generated eleven original
songs, "Willieís a jazz singer and jazz player. Heís an improvisational
musician. Itís different every time. Get a good take and go with it," says
With Last Man Standing, Nelson has added 11 essential new songs to his classic
catalog. One of Willieís most personal and introspective albums to-date, Last
Man Standing reveals the emotional range of Willieís concerns, from the deeply
reflective ("Something You Get Through," to the rollicking and playful ("Me and
You," "Ready to Roar").
An album that acknowledges the transience of time while marveling at the joy,
beauty and surprise the world has to offer, Last Man Standing finds Willie
Nelson rolling at a creative peak, writing and singing and playing with the
seasoned wit and wisdom that comes from the road.
