In Honor Of Willie Nelson Turning 90, Four Of His Classic Albums Will Soon Be Released On Vinyl – Some For The First Time Ever

Willie Nelson country music

Willie Nelson has never shied away from experimenting and putting out new music throughout his extensive career.

The 90-year-old has put out a mind boggling 99 studio albums, along with 14 live albums, drawing influence from tons of different genres over the years.

While his albums like Red Headed Stranger, Shotgun Willie and Always on My Mind may get most of the attention, Willie has some true underrated gems in his catalog, especially albums that have come later in his career.

So in celebration of ol’ Shotgun Willie turning 90, four of those later albums will be released on vinyl – some for the first time ever this year.

Starting on June 23, Willie will release his 2002 album The Great Divide on vinyl for the first time.

Then on August 4, 1998’s Teatro will be released to celebrate its 25th anniversary.

Next he’ll be releasing his 2000 blues-inspired album Milk Cow Blues on vinyl for the first time ever on September 15.

And then just before his induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, he’s dropping his 1996 album Spirit on October 20, which was released on vinyl but on a limited run at the time and has long since been out of print.

The albums will be available on 180-gram black vinyl as well as a limited edition color variant on 140-gram vinyl that will be exclusively available at uDiscover Music and

Needless to say, there’s something about listening to songs on vinyl that makes the songs sound that much sweeter, and it’s great to know we’ll be able to spin these four excellent albums in the very near future.

I’ve said it several times before and I’ll say it again: Willie Nelson is a national treasure, and we must protect him at all costs.
