Willie Nelson sings with Randy Travis on ‘Heroes and Friends’


Randy Travis’ album, ‘Hero and Friends’ was originally released on August 31, 1990 on Warner Brothers Records.  This is still a nice album to listen to.  Randy has assembled a nice group of artists to sing with in this record, and I especially like his bluesy version of ‘Birth of the Blues’ he sings with Willie, ‘Walk our own road’ with Kris Kristofferson, and ‘Happy Trails’, with Roy Rogers.  And Clint Eastwood makes a nice showing, too.
