As the first strains of "It Always Will Be" came through my stereo speakers, I found myself thinking, "Thank God that some things always will be” ... and (thanks to recording media) that Willie Nelson is one of them. His voice is as readily identifiable as the guitar, the pigtails, and the bandana and there is no one else like him. No one else looks like him or sounds like him. In a genre that hasn't always eagerly embraced him, and even labeled him an outlaw (albeit a loveable one) at one point, he still managed to become a peerless country music icon and one of the world's most beloved and well-known artists.
Willie Nelson is the cure for what ails you ... no matter what ails you. That wonderfully unique voice has been around so long that it is easily recognized by generations of fans and reassures you that there are some constants in life. The voice is like a warm hug from a cherished old friend on the title cut, "It Always Will Be," a shared memory of lost love on the poignant "My Broken Heart Belongs To You" and/or a shared smile on the tongue-in-cheek, "Big Booty."
is an incredible depth to everything Nelson sings but the instrumental
introduction on "
Country music is a world dominated by words and the strength of Willie Nelson's songs is in his lyrics and the unique meter in his delivery of them. Nelson perfected the art of touching souls many decades ago and this album indicates that he clearly hasn't lost his touch.
