Press Release

Arriving just in time for Willie's 85th birthday (April 29th), Last Man Standing, comprises entirely of new material, written by Nelson with longtime collaborator and producer Buddy Cannon. The album is being hailed as a worthy successor to Willie's God's Problem Child, which showcased seven Nelson-Cannon compositions and debuted at #1 on the Country charts. Willie and Buddy have been working together since 2008 with Cannon producing more than a dozen of Willie's albums.

The songwriting duo has a unique strategy of shared composition, beginning with back-and-forth text messaging of lyrics with the melodies. "Willie's a jazz singer and jazz player. He's an improvisational musician. It's different every time. Get a good take and go with it," says Cannon.

Said to be one of Willie's most personal and introspective albums to-date, the eleven new songs on Last Man Standing reveals the emotional range of Willie's concerns, from the deeply reflective Something You Get Through, to the rollicking and playful Me and You and Ready to Roar.

An album that acknowledges the transience of time while marvelling at the joy, beauty and surprise the world has to offer, Last Man Standing finds Willie Nelson rolling at a creative peak, writing and singing and playing with the seasoned wit and wisdom that comes from the road.

The first single from the project is the title track from the album Last Man Standing.

The album is available for pre-order now and the single is available at all digital outlets.
