Alongside his new compositions on the album and the title track (which Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame member Sonny Throckmorton co-wrote with his daughter Debby, Joe Manual and Lucinda Hinton), Nelson pays musical tribute to a variety of pop and country songwriters and performers, covering Billy Joel (“Just the Way You Are”), Mac Davis (“It’s Hard to Be Humble” with Lukas Nelson and Micah Nelson) and a pair of songs by the late American country/folk artist Guy Clark (“Immigrant Eyes” and “My Favorite Picture of You,” the title song from Clark’s 2014 Grammy-winning Best Folk Album).

The singer/songwriter is best known for the historic recordings of CrazyRed Headed Stranger, and Stardust. Nelson has earned every conceivable award as a musician and amassed reputable credentials as an author, actor, and activist. He continues to thrive as a relevant and progressive musical and cultural force.
