Willie Nelson previews new album, “God’s Problem Child” on Sirius/XM Radio

Wednesday, April 5th, 2017

Willie Nelson premiered key tracks from his upcoming album God’s Problem Child last night in Nashville during an intimate interview session for SiriusXM. Seated alongside the record’s producer, his longtime collaborator Buddy Cannon, Nelson looked hale and hearty – far from the rumored state of ill health that’s been making the rounds online.

Nelson confronted the stories about his being near death, both via song – he played the studio version of cheeky new track “Still Not Dead” – and in the interview. The Red Headed Stranger, who will turn 84 on April 29th, joked that he enjoys the rumors of his demise because “everyone is always so happy to see me.”

The singer also addresses his mortality, in a more serious manner, in the new song “Old Timer,” written by Donnie Fritz and Lenny LeBlanc. “You think you’re still a young bull rider / until you look in the mirror and see an old timer,” croons Nelson, who went on to reflect on his late friend Merle Haggard. Together, they gave Haggard his final Number One album with the release of 2015’s duets LP Django & Jimmie. (Listen to “Old Timer” below.)

“It was a pretty good way to close the show,” Nelson said of Haggard’s chart-topper. The last track of God’s Problem Child is a tribute to the Hag, “He Won’t Ever Be Gone.”

With the honky-tonks of Broadway lit up behind him, Nelson also took time to remember drinking at Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, one of Nashville’s more famous watering holes where artists like Nelson and Hank Williams would congregate after performing at the Grand Ole Opry next door. One night, Nelson says he inexplicably decided to exit the bar and sprawl out in the road.

“It was about midnight and there wasn’t a lot of traffic so I went out and laid down on Broadway,” he said. “And nothing happened, so I thought, screw this. This ain’t as much fun as I thought it was.”

Nelson revealed he has already recorded another new album, a project with his musician sons Lukas Nelson and Micah Nelson. God’s Problem Child is set for release on April 28th. Nelson’s SiriusXM interview will air later this month on Willie’s Roadhouse (SiriusXM channel 59).

Willie Nelson plays host to Luck Reunion, a family affair

by:  Kaitlin Carter

“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.
