Country Music People's May 2017 issue have got Willie covered. Digital version out now

The first of what seems to be bi-annual event alerting us to a new album, with Willie releasing at least 2 albums a year!

NPR writes he has released "some hundred-plus albums" = I haven't bought a single one.
Having said that Peter Alliss gave the perfect description in 2016 at The Masters Golf . "It's like listening to Willie Nelson. He cant sing at all but makes great records!" - Priceless.
I certainly think this is a far better listen then the "yawn" of another Paisley album.

Willie went to #2 in 1982 with “Last Thing I Needed First Thing This Morning,” and Chris Stapleton offers his take on the tune on his new album, From A Room: Volume 1, which comes out May 5.

Carrie Underwood was honored by BMI at the 69th annual BMI/NAB DINNER on Tuesday night at WYNN ENCORE in LAS VEGAS. She was honored for the impact her music has had on the broadcast industry, as well as her contributions as a songwriter.
Past recipients of the BMI/NAB honor include DOLLY PARTON and WILLIE NELSON

In a recent Your Life In A Song interview UK "Country" (?) King Bob Harris (OBE) was asked:
Who would you invite to an intimate dinner party? He answered you'd have to have Willie there.
And going by his answer to the question who the next Shires/ Ward Thomas will be I think the dinner party has secretly happened!

Love that song, one of my favourite Willie songs.

Here speaks a Yorkshireman and a life long cricketing enthusiast - I hope she can sing better than he can bowl.

Released today:
Willie Nelson - God's Problem Child (Sony Music Entertainment/ Legacy Recordings)
13 Tracks/ Time: 44:14 (CMP April 2017; 4 STARS; Spencer Leigh)
Does anyone have any quotes/ highlights from the Country Music People review?

It really is a great listen from beginning to end and I can hardly believe I'm saying that!
It must make a change from the bland and boring Nashville pop/froth and Chris Country Radio rotting the brain.

Amazon UK - https://www.amazon.com/Gods-Problem-Chi ... B01N9VYKZ7
UK iTunes - https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/gods- ... 1199638808
SPOTIFY - https://open.spotify.com/album/1wzKjL078JEEv3weMFOGa7

As it's also out on Sony Music no reason you would think why we won't be hearing it on BBC country shows in the wake of Paisley's!
It's debut at #1 on UK Country iTunes
