Willie Nelson is set to release the second instalment in the archival recording series, Willie’s Stash. As the title suggests, Willie Nelson And The Boys (Willie’s Stash Vol 2) will shine a spotlight on his sons Lukas and Micah on the album, which is due for release on 20 October 2017.

Curated by the Country Music Hall of Fame legend, the Willie’s Stash recordings represent decades of Nelson’s live performance and studio work. This particular volume of songs focuses on country music standards, including seven penned by Hank Williams.

The new album follows in the tradition of 2014’s December Day – Willie’s Stash Vol.1, which featured the ‘Crazy’ songwriter’s sister Bobbie, a long-time member of his touring Family band. Material for Willie Nelson and the Boys (Willie’s Stash, Vol. 2), was mainly laid down during the 2011 sessions for Heroes, the iconic performer’s debut for the Legacy label. Grammy winner Buddy Cannon, Nelson’s close friend and collaborator for decades, produced the collection, which was recorded by Steve Chadie at Pedernales Recordings Studio in Nelson’s hometown of Austin, Texas.
