Willie Nelson's upcoming duets album

Legacy Recordings will release a new Willie Nelson album, To All The Girls..., on Sept. 24.  

A collection of newly recorded duets between Nelson and contemporary pop-country women singers, it is his third full-length album of new music to be released in the past 16 months.

The second new album release in the artist's 80th birthday year, To All The Girls... is the third new Nelson album since his deal with Legacy was announced in early 2012.
Heroes, his first for Legacy, was released May 2012, debuted at #18 on the Billboard 200 best-selling albums chart (Willie's highest number on the chart since Always On My Mind hit #2 in 1982) and spent five consecutive weeks at #1 on the Americana Radio Chart.
Let's Face The Music And Dance, Willie's second Legacy album, was released this past April (two weeks before Willie's 80th birthday on April 30). Comprised of a range of pop, rock, jazz and country classics chosen by Nelson, Let's Face The Music And Dance was praised by critics, peaking at #16 on the Billboard Top Country Music Albums chart and #49 on the Billboard 200. The album celebrates Nelson's more-than-forty years on the road. 

The artist also put out a memoir, "Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die - Musings from the Road" (published by HarperCollins in May 2012) which hit the New York Times bestselling non-fiction list.
For this memorable occasion, Willie wears fashion designer John Varvatos on the To All The Girls album materials. Varvatos is featuring Willie along with his two sons, Lukas Nelson and Micah Nelson, in the brand's Fall 2013 campaign, which includes striking black and white images and a short film lensed by Danny Clinch.
