Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard

Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard have teamed up over the years, from their 1983 classic “Pancho and Lefty” to their Last of the Breed album and tour with Ray Price, but as Haggard has said, they only do it when the material is right. The duo linked, though, once they heard “Django and Jimmie,” a tribute to Nelson and Haggard’s respective heroes, Django Reinhardt and Jimmie Rodgers (written by Jimmy Melton and Jeff Prince). “It pulled my heard right out,” says Haggard. “I thought, ‘That’s a pretty good song.'”

It became the genesis of their new album, out June 2nd. In honor of Nelson’s 82nd birthday, enjoy this 10-minute video – filmed at Austin’s Arlyn Studios – which gives a rare glimpse into Haggard and Nelson working in the studio, full of weed and jokes. (“Can I borrow some money to get home?” Haggard asks Nelson.) “It’s almost surreal,” says producer Buddy Cannon, of being part of it.

In several fly-on-the-wall scenes, see them reminisce about Johnny Cash and duet on Bob Dylan. Their enthusiasm for the material is evident when they discuss “Unfair Weather Friend,” a new ballad written by Marla Cannon-Goodman and Ward Davis. “It’s got all the great ingredients of being one of those well-known standards,” says Haggard. Adds Nelson, “I think it has a good chance.”

In another scene, they wonder about a new lyric written by Jamey Johnson about a “cackle bobblehead in a box.” “Somebody’s got some weird shit they’re smoking,” someone in the studio says.

“Yeah,” Nelson says. “They’re holding out on us.”

Track list to new Willie Nelson & Merle Haggard Album, “Django and Jimmie”

More details were released on Wednesday regarding the upcoming duets album from country legends Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard.

“Django and Jimmie” will hit physical and digital shelves on June 2, according to a press release from Nelson’s camp Wednesday morning.

The title of the album refers to Django Reinhardt and Jimmie Rodgers, two of the major musical heroes for Nelson and Haggard.

This will be Nelson’s sixth studio album in the past two years since signing with record label Legacy Recordings in early 2012.

His first album with Haggard, “Pancho & Lefty,” was released more than 32 years ago in January 1983.

Haggard told Rolling Stone that the album took less than a week to record.

Haggard was last in the Houston area on April 1, playing a set at the Redneck Country Club in Stafford. Nelson played a sold-out date at the Houston House of Blues in November 2014. There is always the possibility they could return to the Bayou City and play the same stage if we wish hard enough.

Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard album, “Django and Jimmie” to be released June 2nd! (But you can pre-order it now)

Merle Haggard’s and Willie Nelson’s new collaboration album ‘Django & Jimmie’ features 14 new studio tracks and it comes out on June 2nd. Pre-order it on Amazon Music.

Helmed by Nelson’s longtime producer, collaborator and friend Buddy Cannon, Django and Jimmie premieres 14 brand-new studio recordings including: “Django and Jimmie,” a dual tribute to jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt and Jimmie Rodgers, country music’s mythic “Singing Brakeman”; the reflective and meditative “Live This Long”; “Missing Ol’ Johnny Cash,” an homage to country music’s original Man in Black featuring guest vocals from Bobby Bare; a sublime interpretation of Bob Dylan’s “Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright”; and the future outlaw country classic “Unfair Weather Friend,” written by rising songsmiths Marla Cannon-Goodman (Buddy Cannon’s daughter) and Ward Davis.

A legendary country music producer and songwriter in his own right, Buddy helped pen five of the album’s tracks, including “It’s All Going To Pot” (a rollicking anthem for the emerging 21st century cannabis culture) and four cowrites with Willie: “Alice In Hulaland,” “It’s Only Money,” “Where Dreams Come To Die,” and “Driving The Herd.”

Among the 14 essential recordings on Django and Jimmie, Nelson and Haggard each pay musical tribute to the other through heartfelt solo performances: Willie singing Merle’s “Somewhere Between” and Merle covering Willie’s “Family Bible.”

whitewater 3.28.15 133

What a treat, three nights of Willie Nelson and Family, Paula Nelson, and Merle Haggard. Three nights of any one of them would be great, but to get three nights of all that great music was an experience I won’t forget.

There was so much love in the air. The shows were sold out every night, the venue packed with fans who jumped on tickets last November to see these legends. WN&F and Merle Haggard and the Strangers played complete shows each night, and Merle came out and played guitar and sang during Willie’s set. Then, on Saturday night, Willie came out and played with the Strangers, and he and Merle performed songs from the album that they are working on together. Can’t wait for the album!
