Willie Nelson
It Always Will Be (Lost Highway Records)

By: Alex Steininger

Willie Nelson's latest, It Always Will Be is true Willie Nelson, from the vocals to the music. Heartwarming, lyrically rich tales of lost love, broken heart, and wounded souls, all dressed in a soulful, tender, Texas country sound that is littered with lounge, all spun in a cozy, cuddle-by-the-fire presentation. Including duets with Norah Jones ("Dreams Come True"), Paula Nelson ("Be That As It May"), and Lucinda Williams ("Overtime"), Willie pulls out all the stops with his friends on It Always Will Be and writes a damn fine -- as smooth as the smoothest whiskey -- record of beauty and grace, but not without its rough edges. Willie Nelson hasn't lost it, and Lost Highway is lucky to have him. I'll give it an A-.
