I know nothing about “Western swing,” a once-popular fusion of country music, old-time jazz and blues. But Willie Nelson has a new CD coming out as a tribute to the style.
Willie teamed up with the modern-day Western swing band Asleep at the Wheel. Their album (“Willie and the Wheel”) drops on February 3.
One track is available now as a FREE MP3.
