Willie Nelson to do an album with Jerry Lee?



Willie Nelson to do an album with Jerry Lee?

Willie’s secret sauce? A great producer. Plus more than a dash of Willie Nelson.

It has a lot to do with the producer, the sound you get. Danny Lanois is great, and now I work with Buddy Cannon. They all bring something very different to the project. But ultimately it sounds like me, or I hope it does. But I do like to challenge myself, and I'm lucky to work with these guys. In fact, I'm getting ready to do a Sinatra tribute album with Buddy, and I also I want to do an album with Jerry Lee Lewis. So I'm looking forward to that. Jerry Lee? Yeah, he's out there. Actually, I haven't talked to him about doing the record yet—he hasn't said yes or no—so we will have to wait and see. [Laughs]

Might be just wishful thinking from Willie....

I hope not! Willie is an appalling "singer" imo. :oops:

I seem to remember here were some talk about a recording session with Willie, Jerry Lee and Merle Haggard a while back. Nothing come out of that. Not sure if they recorded anything either.

His voice is truly Willie. I have seen him twice and both shows were fantastic. He has written, composed, had hits and given hits to others for a long time. I hope they (JLL) have a #1 together.

Jerry Lee Lewis Still Going Strong At 82

...Lewis will head back into the studio soon. And as with his last few albums, this with be a friends and family affair again. “Kris will be there, Willie Nelson I think will be recording with me. I’m looking forward to that,” he says.....

Great news! And I think a collaboration of Jerry and Willie could work well.

If only its a song with Wille ok..I dont like Willie Nelson voices at all. Ok, he's a legend but I don't think he's a good singer.

Willie Nelson has a rew record out right now, called Last Man Standing.
