Marty Stuart turns in a bittersweet cover of Willie Nelson’s “One in a Row,” the latest track to be released from his digital album Songs I Sing in the Dark. Stuart released his version of “Ready for the Times to Get Better” in March.

A full band performance that builds on its foundation of piano, steel, and drums to include more orchestral sounds, Stuart’s “One in a Row” piles on the pathos for its narrator and his conflict about a lover who won’t be true. “And if you can look into my eyes one time without tellin’ lies/that makes one in a row,” he sings. A mid-Sixties cut for Nelson, “One in a Row” stuck out to Stuart for both the arrangement and its lyrical content.

“The musical treatment given to Willie’s ‘One in a Row’ by Nashville’s legendary A-Team of musicians is no less than exquisite musical architecture, pure perfection,” he said in a release. “But it’s the idea, the words, and the soul of the poet that’s truly the thing to behold here. Willie and his words have always mattered. His songs take up very little space on a piece of paper. However, his words have a way of making their way into your heart and then sticking around for a lifetime.”

Willie Nelson has recorded an updated version of “I’ll Be Seeing You” for a new PSA called “Back in the Game,” encouraging Americans to get their COVID-19 vaccines and return to our beloved sporting games.

The country legend first released the tune on 1994’s Healing Hands of Time, and as he notes in a recent statement he hopes to “empower millions more to get the answers they need and feel confident in getting vaccinated, like I did.”

Added Ad Council President/CEO Lisa Sherman, “Sports and sports moments hold a special place in the hearts of millions of people across our country and, regardless of who you’re rooting for, we’re all looking forward to getting back to the arenas, stadiums and moments we miss.”

Shooter Jennings and Lukas Nelson – the sons of country legends Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings – proved the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree when they teamed up to cover a song their fathers originally made famous of.

Shooter Jennings and Lukas Nelson recorded the iconic song “Mammas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys” for the Netflix series called The Ranch – where it was used as the sitcom’s theme song.

The country classic was written by Patsy Bruce – whose husband, Ed Bruce, was the first to record the song. It tells the tale of a man warning the mothers not to let their kids live the tough and nomadic life of a cowboy. Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings released the outlaw classic in 1978 for their duet album Waylon & Willie. And their rendition reached the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs

Several years later, it is Shooter Jennings and Lukas Nelson’s time to shine! Shooter revealed that he and Lukas had a great time while recording the song. With their undeniable talents, the two singers were able to create an alternate rhythm that tweaks the vibe a little bit from the original — allowing them to make the song like their own. Shooter also added that their fathers are their number one fans. Hence, Shooter couldn’t be more proud to have such an opportunity to sing this iconic song – most especially that he’s singing it with Lukas, whom he considers as his brother.
