What do Willie Nelson and Adam Lambert have in common? Nothing, but they are both worth checking out in this weeks’ new releases
Add It To The Collection: Willie Nelson, the perennial country outlaw, highwayman and poster boy for the legalization of pot, is on the cusp of his 80th birthday – there must be something to that little green leaf. For more than 60 years Willie has travelled the world bringing is nasally vocal style to country classics and reimagined pop songs alike. If his latest release, Heroes, is any indication, Willie has no plans to slow down and retire gracefully. In fact, Willie continues to push the boundaries of country music and take his music to new audiences. Heroes is far from a perfect album.
Idol vs. Idol… A few weeks back I made mention of the first single from American Idol season 10 winner Scotty McCreery and how I found it less than impressive. I had no intention of listening to the rest of Scotty’s debut when it came out on October 4, but with a record-breaking number one album and an astonishing 197,000 units sold, one can’t help but take notice.
