A Tribute to Willie Nelson

Justice 9
Release year

As with all tributes, artists stay close to the original version while others radically reinterpret, and that’s the case with Twisted Willie

Author & Special Guests

There were dozens, perhaps hundreds, of tribute albums in the 90s to feature a wide array of talented artists with varying results. Thanks to a Patreon subscriber suggestion, we’re checking out the 1996 release Twisted Willie - A Tribute To Willie Nelson. As with all tribute albums, some artists and bands stay close to the original version while other radically reinterpret, and that’s the case with Twisted Willie. We definitely found interpretations we liked and others that left us scratching our heads - tune in to find out which ones.
