Toby Keith, Zac Brown Band, Jamey Johnson, Darius Rucker and Willie Nelson all have one thing in common: country music (Hey — if there’s something else, we don’t know about it). The country supergroup took the stage halfway through the 2012 CMT Music Awards to perform Nelson’s ‘Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die.’
Last week, the CMT Awards announced the beginnings of a performance lineup for the 2012 show. The original bill was already pretty stellar, as it includes big names like Carrie Underwood and Kenny Chesney on the roster. But the performance schedule got quite a bit sweeter when a few country icons and future country legends joined the ticket.
New music from Willie Nelson hit stores today, and a new song from Rascal Flatts hit radio. Find the Taste of Country reviews on both projects in the Daily Roundup below, as well as which country star wound up on Oprah’s new show with her famous husband.
Dan ‘Bee’ Spears, who served as the bassist in Wille Nelson‘s touring band for over 40 years and who played on several of the singer’s crucial albums, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday (Dec. 8). Spears was 62.
Over the course of his long career, Willie Nelson has dabbled in a wide variety of genres, from reggae to adult contemporary to blues and beyond. Along the way, he’s worked with and covered a staggering number of artists — and now that list includes Coldplay.
It must be good to be Willie Nelson. You can basically flaunt the law, pay a fine and your legend just gets bigger and bigger. Do you remember when Willie Nelson's bus was stopped in St. Martin Parish? They found marijuana then and did Willie spend any time in jail? No he didn't. Willie was recently busted in Texas with enough pot that would have warranted felony charges for regular folks. Mysteriously the amount of contraband found reduced itself to misdemeanor status while no one was looking. Now Willie has skated the law again.
