Willie Nelson is releasing a new album later this month, but he already has a whole new project in the can.
During a special interview for SiriusXM in support of his upcoming record God’s Problem Child, Nelson revealed he’s recorded an album with his sons Lukas and Mikah. There’s currently no other details on the project, but it once again shows that Nelson has no plans of slowing down.
Earlier this year, fans were worried about the country legend after he cancelled multiple dates due to unknown health problems. During his April 4 interview alongside producer Buddy Cannon in Nashville, he was clearly in good spirits.
A group of lucky SiriusXM subscribers had the opportunity to hear Nelson chat along with a sampling of new songs from God’s Problem Child, due out April 28. He spent time reminiscing on his early days in Nashville, throwing back beers in Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge.
He explained that the beloved bar was the place Patsy Cline’s husband, Charlie Dick, first heard a demo of “Crazy” playing in their jukebox. A short time later, Dick drove a somewhat intoxicated Nelson over to their house. Although Willie refused to come inside, Dick played the demo for Cline, who immediately fell in love with it.
Stories like these, along with his description of a night where he decided to lay in the middle of Broadway just for laughs, showed off Nelson’s eternal sense of humor. And although there were plenty of lighthearted moments, Nelson became more serious when discussing the passing of his close friend and collaborator, Merle Haggard. He kept his comments brief, but noted his immediate connection with “He Won’t Ever Be Gone,” a track that penned in honor of Haggard on the day he passed.
Nelson is in town to honor Haggard with a performance at a star-studded tribute concert to be held at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena tomorrow, April 6. The event will mark the one year anniversary of Haggard’s passing.
Look out for Nelson’s interview to air on his SiriusXM channel Willie’s Roadhouse later this month. We here at Wide Open Country will also keep you posted on details of his new project as they happen.

“You’re either in Luck, or you’re out of Luck,” as Willie Nelson likes to say, and he should know.
Luck, Texas is Willie’s private Old West town located just outside of Austin, and home of the annual “Luck Reunion” artisanal music and culture celebration, held amidst the madness of SXSW.
With Willie himself headlining the main stage, this year’s “Luck Reunion” offered an impressive array of artists on multiple stages. SiriusXM Outlaw Country listeners can hear a two-hour special featuring highlight performances from Margo Price, Parker Millsap, Valerie June, Brent Cobb, Aaron Lee Tasjan and Lily Meola, as well as Willie’s sons Lukas with Promise of the Real, and Micah with Insects Vs. Robots, plus a guest spot from Billy Joe Shaver with his old compadre on “Willie the Wandering Gypsy and Me.”
Willie’s exclusive SiriusXM Willie’s Roadhouse channel will also air a one-hour “Luck Reunion” special, featuring his complete set, along with an exclusive backroom conversation with host Dallas Wayne.
Recorded at Willie’s Luck World Headquarters clubhouse, additional “artist roundtables” were hosted by Texas hill-country hero Ray Wylie Hubbard, who teamed with Ray Benson of Asleep at the Wheel, Brent Cobb, Valerie June and Paul Thorn, and SiriusXM “Loon in the Afternoon” Mojo Nixon, joined by Margo Price, Aaron Lee Tasjan, Paul Cauthen and Parker Millsap.

Micah and Lukas Nelson were interviewed during the day at the Luck Reunion. The performances were filmed, too, but I don’t know when or if we’ll get to see anything.
Always a highlight, when Willie Nelson invites other artists on stage at the end of his shows, to join him in a few songs, and a gospel set. It is fun to see how excited all the artists are, to get to come on stage and sing with Willie Nelson.
