Glen Campbell, Willie Nelson, “Ain’t it Funny How Time Slips Away”

Friday, November 3rd, 2017
by: Daniel Montgomery

Legendary country music singer Glen Campbell died on August 8, 2017, at age 81. He had announced in 2011 that he was suffering from Alzheimer’s disease and later embarked on a farewell tour. But now after his passing we can expect the Country Music Association to give him a farewell of their own: he’s the frontrunner to win Musical Event of the Year at the 2017 CMA Awards for “Funny How Time Slips Away,” his collaboration with Willie Nelson.

As of this writing, Campbell and Nelson get leading odds of 1/1 based on the combined predictions of hundreds of Gold Derby users. That includes support from 18 of out Top 24 Users, who got the highest scores predicting last year’s CMAs, and 18 of our All-Star Top 24, who got the highest scores when you combine the last two years’ CMAs. Even if Campbell weren’t a sentimental favorite due to his recent death, it might be hard to beat the combined star-power of him and Nelson.

But it’s been a long time since Campbell made an impact at the CMAs. This posthumous nomination is his first bid in 40 years, and he only ever won twice during his lifetime: Entertainer of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year, both in 1968. So the Country Music Association may also wish to make it up to an artist who can be seen as greatly under-rewarded. Nelson, meanwhile, has been a consistent CMA favorite, winning nine times, including Entertainer of the Year in 1979. He most recently prevailed in this category in 2002 for “Mendocino County Line” with Lee Ann Womack.

Willie Nelson, Lukas Nelson, Micah Nelson, “Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain”

When it comes to Willie Nelson‘s sons Micah and Lukas, the apple didn’t fall far from the tree. You can see the proof in this new video of the three singing one of Nelson’s most iconic hits, “Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain.”

In a new Facebook video, Lukas Nelson shares a personal story with his brother and father about the tune. “The first song that you taught me dad, when I was a kid, was ‘Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain,’ Lukas says. “Was it really?” Willie replies.

Sure enough, it’s how Lukas learned the “E” chord.

“I remember asking you what you wanted for your birthday,” Lukas says. “I was like 10 or 11. You were like, ‘You know what would make me happy? Is if you learned to play guitar.’”

“And I took that to heart,” Lukas says. That night, Willie taught him “Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain.” To make things even a little cooler, a woman named Elaina Rose commented on the video with another story. “This is such a special song for me,” Rose commented. “My great grandfather Fred Rose wrote this song in 1944. It was first recorded by his business partner, Roy Acuff in 1945 but didn’t become a hit until Willie. Lovely to hear this morning. Thanks guys!”

Willie Nelson released his version of the song in 1975 on the album Red Headed Stranger. Since then, it became one of country’s classic songs. It even landed on Rolling Stones‘ list of the 500 greatest songs of all time at No. 302.

Nelson is currently promoting an album called Willie And The Boys: Willie’s Stash No. 2, which features Nelson and his sons singing 12 classic tunes. Nelson also often tours with his kids when they’re available to join, making music truly a family affair.

9 questions for Willie Nelson

From his days as a Bible salesman to his favorite Southern food to the story behind his iconic braids, Willie Nelson gave us little peeks inside his lifetime of experience (that’s chock-full of some crazy stuff, we’re sure!).

Another Willie Nelson cover, “Ain’t it Funny, how time slips away”, by Jim James

Wednesday, November 1st, 2017

My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James is releasing a sequel to his 2009 EP, Tribute To, which featured six George Harrison covers. Tribute To 2 is another covers album, but this time to a variety of artists, including The Beach Boys, Sonny & Cher, WIllie Nelson, Bob Dylan, Emerson Lake & Palmer, and more. His cover of The Beach Boys’ “I Just Wasn’t Made For These Times” is out now, and it stays pretty true to the original but throws in some new tricks. It’s got orchestral backing, triumphant horns, and Jim James doing a nice impression of Brian Wilson’s vocal style.

The album will be out December 8 via ATO, and that same day he’ll also reissue Tribute To, which features another Bob Dylan cover as a bonus track. You can see the tracklists for both releases below.

Meanwhile, My Morning Jacket have upcoming shows, including a New Year’s Eve run in Colorado and One Big Holiday in the Dominican Republic.

Willie Nelson, “What Was it You Wanted”, on Bob Dylan – 30th Anniversary Concert Celebration (2014)

Monday, October 30th, 2017

Columbia Records and Legacy Recording, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, will release Bob Dylan – The 30th Anniversary Concert Celebration – Deluxe Edition in three configurations  (2CDs; 2DVDs, and BlueRay Disc) on Tuesday, March 4, 2014.

Struck from a new High Definition video master with remastered audio, The 30th Anniversary Concert Celebration – Deluxe Edition makes this historic all-star musical event available for the first time on DVD and Blu-ray.

The 2DVD and Blu-ray versions of The 30th Anniversary Concert Celebration – Deluxe Edition include 40 minutes of previously unreleased material including behind-the-scenes rehearsal footage, interviews and more.

The 2CD audio edition premieres two previously unreleased recordings from the concert’s sound check: Sinéad O’Connor singing “I Believe In You” and Eric Clapton’s interpretation of “Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright.”

The 30th Anniversary Concert Celebration – Deluxe Edition includes new notes by pop music historian Bill Flanagan.

On October 16, 1992, New York City’s hottest concert ticket was the live gathering of musical giants, legends and archetypes who’d come to Madison Square Garden to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Bob Dylan’s first Columbia Records album and play a selection of Dylan songs—from culturally iconic (John Mellencamp’s no-nonsense “Like A Rolling Stone”) to bootleg obscure (Lou Reed’s acerbic take on “Foot of Pride”)—that had moved and inspired them over the decades.

The four hour show, performed for a sold-out audience of more than 18,000 fans and live-cast around the world, brought together an unprecedented roster of artists and icons including Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash, Lou Reed, The Clancy Brothers, Richie Havens, Johnny Winter, Roger McGuinn, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Stevie Wonder, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Neil Young, Eric Clapton, Ron Wood, Chrissie Hynde, The O’Jays, Eddie Vedder, Sinéad O’Connor, Tracy Chapman, George Harrison (then making his first US concert appearance in 18 years) and more. Providing musical backing throughout the show was an ensemble dream team featuring three members of Booker T. & The M.G.’s, G.E. Smith on guitar with Jim Keltner and Anton Fig on drums.

Dubbed “Bobfest” on stage by a jubilant Neil Young, the 30th Anniversary Concert Celebration reached a transcendent crescendo with an unforgettable performance and all-star jam featuring the evening’s honoree.

Viewed anew from a 20-year perspective, Bob Dylan – The 30th Anniversary Concert Celebration – Deluxe Edition is a remarkable testament to the enduring legacy and ongoing musical influence of Bob Dylan. That valedictory gathering from more than 20 years ago proved to be a mid-career retrospective of a recording artist and performer who continues to inform and transform the cultural landscape.

The Bob Dylan – The 30th Anniversary Concert Celebration – Deluxe Edition is the first Dylan title to follow the historic November 5 release of Bob Dylan Complete Album Collection Vol. One, a colossal library box housing the artist’s official Columbia Records album canon, from 1962’s Bob Dylan through 2012’s Tempest
