The news comes after Nelson announced that he is set to release his 98th career Studio album, I Don’t Know A Thing About Love, on March 3rd. The album is set to consist of 10 classic songs written by the legendary American songwriter Harlan Howard.
For the lead single, Nelson released “Busted,” which was initially a song for Johnny Cash with the Carter family back in 1963, when it peaked at No. 13 on the country chart. It later became a hit for Ray Charles, peaking at No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100. Nelson and Ray later recorded a live version of it for their 2005 album, Genius & Friends.
Nelson is currently up for four Grammy Awards this year, safe to say he’s doing just fine.
