The Vegas shows are just the latest in Willie Nelson’s neverending concert schedule. He’s also got another new album coming out in April titled “God’s Problem Child.”

According to “Rolling Stone,” the project includes his take on Donald Trump’s presidency in a song called “Delete and Fast Forward.” There’s another song titled “Still Not Dead,” which addresses the false reports of Willie’s passing that pop up from time-to-time.

He says, “I got up two or three times in the last couple of years and read the paper where I’d passed away. So I just wanted to let ’em know that’s a lot of horseshit.”
