Over the past few weeks, country legend Willie Nelson has premiered a few songs from his new album, Last Man Standing — and each has shown the living icon at his most vulnerable, raw, and self-reflective. Its release coincides with Nelson’s 85th birthday on Sunday, April 29.
Today, that album was released, and it’s just a tremendous listen from start to finish.

Countless albums, decades, of touring, a steadfast commitment to family, an indelible and undeniable place in pop culture history, and a quick wit. He’s done it all throughout his amazing career and life.
Happy (early) birthday, Willie, and thank you.
