Editorial Reviews

2010 album from the Country legend. On Country Music, Willie Nelson goes back to his roots with a songbook of classic Americana. The album was recorded in Nashville, TN and produced by T Bone Burnett. Nelson wrote one track on the album, 'Man With The Blues' and, with T Bone Burnett, co-arranged three traditional songs, 'Satan Your Kingdom Must Come Down', 'I Am A Pilgrim,' and 'Nobody's Fault But Mine.' The album also features many popular old-time/Bluegrass/Folk songs including Ernest Tubb's 'Seaman's Blues', Merle Travis' 'Dark As A Dungeon' and Doc Watson's 'Freight Train Boogie'. Willie Nelson collaborated with many musicians on Country Music including old-time banjo master Riley Baugus, double bassist Dennis Crouch, and T Bone himself, all musicians featured on Raising Sand, the 2009 Grammy Award-winning Album of the Year by Robert Plant and Alison Krauss.

Prime Cuts: Man with the Blues, Seaman's Blues, Freight Train Boogie

Without a doubt, Willie Nelson is the singer's singer. Whilst many artists abide religiously to the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" adage for fear of being ostracized by their hardcore fans and commercial radio, Nelson is blessed with a large enough and diverse fan base that marketability is immaterial to him. Thus, this country outlaw had the liberty of cross pollinating genres over the course of his illustrious career with albums of standards ("Stardust" and "American Standards"), reggae ("Countryman"), blues ("Milk Cow Blues"), Western swing ("Willie and the Wheel"), commercial country ("Born for Trouble"), children songs ("Rainbows"), jazz ("Two Men with the Blues") and pop/rock ("Across the Great Divide"). Yet, despite the diversity of musical styles, it is Willie Nelson's signature often off beat vocals that provide the identity amongst these albums. This time round Nelson had returned back to his mother milk of music: solid old-fashioned country with lots of fiddles and pedal steel at the fore. Thanks are due to foresight of Rounder Records (a company known for keeping the traditionalism of country music alive) of signing Nelson to its roaster. And also kudos are appropriate to producer T Bone Bennett who has genes so embedded in the rustic side of music that everything he touches (including Alison Krauss and Robert Plant's "Raising Sand" and the soundtrack to "O Brother, Where Art Thou") have become touch stones of country music. Nelson's "Country Music" looks like its heading in such a lofty direction with a galore of awards waiting in the wings.

While the term "country music" is so fluid that few dare to even attempt to give definition to it.

I love Willie's latest effort. My favorite track is "Pistol Packing Mama". This is a song originally done by Al Dexter. I have never heard of this song, so it is new to me. Riley Bungus does an excellent job playing the banjo here. All the musicians sound great on this disc. This song is very upbeat. "Drinking Champagne" has a very pretty tone and a romantic feel to it. This is a song originally done by Bill Mack, but Willie has the ability to make this song and so many others on this disc his own. "Man With The Blues" is a fun song that makes me feel good. "Freight Train Boogie" is an upbeat song with superb harmonica playing. Dennis Crouch provides good sound on the upright bass on the track "Nobody's Fault But Mine". "My Baby's Gone" is a song with a sad tone to it, but it sounds beautifully with Willie's vocals. "Ocean of Diamonds" is a pretty song. I love the steel guitar playing on this track. This song puts me in a good mood. "Satisfied Mind" is a comtemplative song originally done by Johnny Cash. This is the best country music I have heard in a long time. Every track sounds new and fresh.

I noted that another reviewer called the "The Real Willie", but I have to disagree. Nelson knows almost no bounds in his interest in musical styles (well, so far he hasn't tackled Opera!). Like Johnny Cash, Nelson loves all kinds of music, not that he's always adept at carrying it off. (His duets with Wynton Marsalis on their jazz CD is an example. Nelson tries but spends most of his time adding to support to Marsalis and his band on that project.). On this CD, one of my favorites - as well as the Western Swing one he did about a year ago with Ray Benson and Asleep at the Wheel - Nelson is in his element and his playing is upfront with the other musicians.

The fact that Willie is on Rounder - until it was recently purchased by Concord Music Group on its 40th Anniversary - one of the last of the independent labels, is testament that he knows a passionately run label when he sees it.

Nelson's choice of musicians also shows he knows where the best ones are. With Buddy Miller on nearly every track and Jim Lauderdale on backing vocals, he's supported by fine company. His voice perfectly matches the songs - both the standards like "I Am A Pilgrim" and "Dark as A Dungeon" fit nicely with the leadoff track "Man With The Blues" - a Nelson-penned piece.

Who knows what direction this "Red Headed Stranger" will take next - or even what label he'll pop up on - but I'm sure going along for the ride. So should you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Real Country Music July 30, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love this CD. I have loved Willie Nelson for many years. He is a real country artist, although his music transcends musical boundaries. His voice is unique, and so is his guitar picking. I can always recognize his guitar playing. These selections are all beautiful and make me emotional. I have listened to it over and over this week, may 9 or 10 times so far.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally! Willie Nelson And T-Bone Burnett May 11, 2010
Format:Audio CD
It is hard to believe that Country Music is the first collaboration between the two Texas music legends Willie Nelson and T-Bone Burnett. When I heard about the pair's working together, I couldn't wait for it to come out, and I am certainly not disappointed in what they've created. After American Classic, last year's attempt at recapturing the magic of Stardust, it was good for Willie to get back to the basics, and there is no one better at roots music than Burnett.

Nelson penned one original for Country Music - the opener "Man With The Blues", and it is the opener on the guilty pleasure of stereotypical country music. It sounds like it would fit in nicely on the O' Brother, Where Art Thou? Soundtrack (no coincidence considering Burnett produced that too). I love the line "If you need a little shove/in foulin' up in love/Come to me/I'm the man with the blues". It also assures longtime Nelson fans that his harmonica playing sidekick Mickey Raphael is present and accounted for. The melancholy country blues sound continues on "Seaman's Blues" where "My good gal's behind me/No lovin' for so long". I also liked Nelson's take on the bluegrass classic "Ocean Of Diamonds". It continues the theme of love and loss. The blues really bottom out, however, at the midpoint of the CD on Nelson's cover of "Satisfied Mind". I wonder if he knew that his longtime friend Johnny Cash's posthumous American VI: Ain't No Grave (see my review) released only a month prior would include the same song. Nelson's version includes richer instrumentation and harmony vocals in contrast to the sparse version on Cash's CD. I like them both, but the timing on Nelson's release is not the best.
