Willie Nelson will release his latest album For The Good Times: A Tribute to Ray Price on 16th September 2016 through Legacy Recordings.
For the album Nelson has teamed up with longtime friends producer Fred Foster and conductor/arranger Bergen White. Foster and White worked together to complete Ray Price’s final album Beauty Is… at Nashville’s Ocean Way.
For The Good Times: A Tribute To Ray Price is a celebration of Price’s impact and influence on American pop and Country music. Nelson and Price were friends from their first meeting until Price’s death in 2013.
Nelson is joined on six of the album’s tracks by The Time Jumpers, the Grammy-nominated Western Swing dream team comprised of Vince Gill (electric and acoustic guitar, harmony vocals), Andy Reiss (electric guitar), Larry Franklin (fiddle), Joe Spivey (fiddle), Kenny Sears (fiddle), Brad Albin (bass), Billy Thomas (drums), Jeff Taylor (piano and accordion), Paul Franklin (pedal steel) and Willie’s Family Band harmonica player Mickey Raphael.
