Maybe the best news of my day. Country legends Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard are releasing a new album together June 2! Which isn’t very far away! It will be titled Django and Jimmie. Which is paying tribute to the relationship between jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt and the late Country Music Hall of Fame member Jimmie Rodgers. Both guys played huge parts in Willie and Merle’s careers.
Willie and Merle also take solo turns on selections from each other’s respective catalogs on the new project. Extra cool part? Willie wrote a few new tracks for Django and Jimmie, too.
Merle says, “[There’s] new songs, a couple of classics and Willie sang like he was a teenager.”
We just love Willie and Merle music!
