As a songwriter and a performer, Willie Nelson played a vital role in post-rock & roll country music. Although he didn't become a star until the mid-'70s, Nelson spent the '60s writing songs that became hits for stars like Ray Price ("Night Life"), Patsy Cline ("Crazy"), Faron Young ("Hello Walls"), and Billy Walker ("Funny How Time Slips Away") as well as releasing a series of records on Liberty and RCA that earned him a small, but devoted, cult following....

April 19, 2010 - Austin360.com | Austin American-Statesman - Michael Corcoran

In theory, this should be special — the classic Willie Nelson album we haven’t had since “Spirit” in 1996. In the producer’s chair you have T-Bone Burnett, who’s already resurrected mountain music (“O Brother Where Art Thou?”) and Robert Plant (“Raising Sand,” with Alison Krauss) this decade. The pitch here is “Stardust” meets the Grand Ol’ Opry circa 1962. How could it miss?

Willie Nelson once again stamps familiar standards with his ineradicable musical personality on his new album, “American Classic.” Nelson simplifies and slows down the tempos, then applies his tawny, world-weary voice to mostly melancholy lyrics, as he interprets songs from the mid-century catalog.

Apparently, alt-country malcontent Ryan Adams didn't smoke enough grass with Willie Nelson on their recent tour, so he lured the legend into the studio to produce "Songbird" in between tokes. It's 73-year-old Nelson's 187th album (by my count), and a far cry from the crowning latter-day works of his contemporaries, Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash.

“You are the king of South By Southwest,” journalist Elliot Wilson said to Kendrick Lamar at the top of the quick, half-hour interview Thursday afternoon.
