Willie Nelson has announced a new studio album, First Rose of Spring. It’s out April 24 via Legacy. Listen to the title track from the record below. Scroll down for the album cover, created by Nelson’s son Micah.
Buddy Cannon produced First Rose of Spring. He and Nelson also co-wrote two new songs on the record, “Blue Star” and “Love Just Laughed.” The album follows last year’s Ride Me Back Home, whose title track recently earned Nelson the 2020 Grammy Award for Best Country Solo Performance.
