"Countryman" out Tuesday
The "Countryman" married the street on Tuesday. It is Willie Nelson new reggae album, which he began work on in 1995 for Island Records but was shelved after Universal bought Polygram, and Island founder Chris Blackwell left the company.
The album, produced by Don Was, includes reggae versions of Nelson songs, such as "Darkness On the Face of the Earth" and "One in a Row." Also it covers Jimmy Cliff's "The Harder They Come" and "Sitting in Limbo," and a song called "I'm a Worried Man" by Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash, which Nelson recorded as a duet with Toots Hibbert of Toots and the Maytals.
