Willie Nelson’s Ride Me Back Home out (June 21, 2019)


New York, NY – Legacy Recordings, a division of Sony Music Entertainment, is previewing Willie Nelson’s new studio album, Ride Me Back Home, with an album trailer out today spotlighting four key songs from the album.

Willie and his longtime producer/collaborator/friend Buddy Cannon are featured in the trailer providing background information and insight into the songs. In addition, Willie has shared a music video for the album’s 3rd single “Come On Time” also out today.   

The four tracks showcased on the album trailer are: “Come On Time,” a rollicking upbeat groove co-written by Willie and Buddy; “My Favorite Picture of You,” a haunting ballad penned by Guy Clark (from his 2014 Grammy-winning Best Folk Album); “Hard to Be Humble” featuring Willie rocking out with his sons, Lukas Nelson and Micah Nelson, on a tune written by Mac Davis; and “Ride Me Back Home,” an homage to horses written by Sonny Throckmorton (with his daughter Debby, Joe Manual & Lucinda Hinton) inspired by Willie’s “Luck” ranch in Texas.

Willie has adopted scores of horses over the years, rescuing them from the slaughterhouse and giving them a home on his ranch.  

Ride Me Back Home –Willie Nelson’s new studio album (and 13th for Legacy)–arrives on Friday, June 21. It will be available on CD, vinyl and digital formats as well as part of exclusive merch bundles on Willie’s web store.

“With Willie Nelson’s Ride Me Back Home, the artist rounds out a trilogy about mortality that began in 2017 with God’s Problem Child and was followed in 2018 with Last Man Standing,” observed American writer and music journalist Mikal Gilmore. “Ride Me Back Home, though, brings a different component of mortality into view: empathy.”
