Willie Nelson has long been honored as a genuine legend, and his songs and concerts are loved worldwide. Though his roots are in country, Willie's musical influences are as broad as the Texas skies, unlimited to any one genre.
"These are my favorite songs. My favorite all-time songs," Willie says. "I knew there were millions of people who liked these songs and would love to hear them again. I grew up with them... they're some of the first songs I learned to play."
“Why be predictable?,” Willie Nelson asked Columbia Records executive Nick Blackburn, after the latter resisted the Red Headed Stranger’s decision to make an album of classic pop tunes. Talk about outlaw country. Cutting against the genre’s traditions and Music Row conventions, Nelson’s Stardust remains a genius-level creation as well as the icon’s most commercially successful release, a truly gorgeous record infused with ultimate respect for composers and lyrics and many of the finest performances of his career. It is a quintessential part of any catalog.
Having met Jones while living in Malibu, Nelson established a relationship with the musician that extended to roles as producer, arranger and band mate. Jones’ superior knowledge of the American Songbook comes through via the material’s economy of scale and sympathetic approach. Acoustic guitar arpeggios, contrasting breaks, bluesy harmonicas, glowing organs, R&B-tinged horns, brushed drums, and relaxed bass lines trickle throughout the songs, all distinguished by Nelson’s intimate timbre and absolutely astonishing vocal expressiveness.
In redefining and reimagining standards such as Irving Berlin’s “Blue Skies,” Hoagy Carmichael’s “Georgia On My Mind,” and the age-old “All of Me”—all of which landed in the Top 5 of the Country singles chart—Nelson wedded together pop, country, jazz, folk, and blues in a manner in which no artist had ever before done. He gained considerable rewards for his exquisite efforts: Stardust sold more than five million copies and, incredibly, stayed on the Country album charts for more than ten years.
