Country Music – 2010 (Rounder)
by Steve Guttenberg
Willie Nelson sings country music
Willie Nelson sings country music, and, and that’s pretty much all you need to know. Song selection never falters, but “Satan Your Kingdom Must Come Down” is stunningly beautiful, thanks to the no-frills, utterly honest sound of Nelson’s vocals and guitar.
“Country Music” was recorded in Nashville, Tenn., and produced by T Bone Burnett. This record is an understated gem, so what you get is just the sound of Nelson, surrounded by his pick of great pickers. What’s not to like?
