Willie Nelson to Release Ray Price Tribute Album
Willie Nelson is paying tribute to his late friend, Ray Price, with a new album. Nelson will release For the Good Times: A Tribute to Ray Price, on Sept. 16.
On his new album, Nelson teamed up with producer Fred Foster and conductor/arranger Bergen White. Both Foster and White worked together on Price's final album, Beauty Is..., at Nashville's Ocean Way Studios. As a result, it is at this studio that Nelson has returned to record his forthcoming release.
According to a press release, the album "celebrates the wide-reaching impact and influence of Ray Price on American pop and country music."
"Ray was as a close a friend as you could have," Nelson says in a behind-the-scenes video via Rolling Stone Country. "We traveled together, lived together, played music together, partied together. . . and had a lot of good times."
The album also features Vince Gill and his western swing band the Time Jumpers on several of the tracks. The Nashville String Machine provides strings for the orchestral tracks. Complete track listing of For the Good Times: A Tribute to Ray Price below.
