Neil Young held an onstage family reunion Friday night during his concert in Rome as Willie Nelsonjoined the rocker and Promise of the Real, which features Nelson’s sons Lukas and Micah.
It’s family time here tonight, we’re gonna have the whole family come out,” Young told the crowd as he introduced Willie Nelson. “What do you say, pop?” Nelson soon strapped on a guitar and joined Young and his sons on Old Ways‘ “Are There Any More Real Cowboys?,” a track Nelson and Young have played together in the past. Nelson stuck around for one more song, leading his classic “On the Road Again” alongside Young and Promise of the Real.
Nelson’s appearance onstage wasn’t a complete surprise as, earlier in the day, Lukas Nelson revealed on Instagram that Willie sat in with the band during rehearsals at the Temre Di Caracalla venue. Following Friday’s concert, Lukas Nelson wrote, “Dad joined us tonight in Rome. To be able to support my two heroes together on stage with my brothers is a joy that is indescribable.”
Willie Nelson and Sheryl Crow appear on “CMT Crossroads,” taped the previous month on the Sony Pictures lot in Los Angeles. In addition to their own material, they offer a duet on the Johnny Cash & June Carter classic “Jackson”
Nelson played an electric guitar throughout the night instead of his battered classical acoustic, dubbed “Trigger.” (Crow said her instruments have no names, but she might refer to them as “my little money makers.”) “My guitar,” Nelson explained, “is on the way to Amsterdam [for a European tour]. I am following soon behind.” (www.cmt.com)

Aaron Lewis will release his first album for Dot Records this fall. Titled Sinner, the 11-track album includes a cameo from Willie Nelson on the title track as well as a cover of Chris Stapleton‘s “Whiskey and You.”
The album was produced by Buddy Cannon (George Strait, Merle Haggard, George Jones) and recorded over 16 hours at Nashville’s Blackbird Studios. According to a press release, Sinner “captures Lewis’ mindset, a laid back soundtrack that is reminiscent of the genre’s most honest and musically adventurous artists.”
“I’d like to think that Sinner is a newer take on classic, traditional Outlaw Country, Waylon and Merle and Willie, and Hank Jr. and Johnny Cash and all that stuff,” Lewis says. “That was the music I heard a kid, and that’s the country music that permeated my soul and stuck with me my whole life.”
Sinner is available for pre-order at pledgemusic.com/aaronlewis. Fans attending Lewis’ upcoming tour will get a preview of the album during his set. Every ticket purchased for the tour will also result in a digital download of the Sinner album once it is officially released on Sept. 16.
