Willie Nelson – “Roll Me Up” (Feat. Snoop Dogg, Jamey Johnson, & Kris Kristofferson)
Country music deity Willie Nelson is about to release a new album called Heroes, and we’ve already posted his Pearl Jam and Coldplay covers. And for reasons that might have something to do with today’s date, he’s chosen this day to let the world hear another track from the LP, this one entitled “Roll Me Up.” The song includes a pretty notable lineup of talent: legendary Willie peer and fellow Highwayman Kris Kristofferson (who will always be Whistler from Blade to me), outlaw-country heir apparent Jamey Johnson, and — a surprise, but then again, not that much of a surprise — Snoop Dogg. This isn’t the first time Snoop and Willie have crossed paths, and Snoop, admirably, doesn’t rap on the track, instead singing in a craggy croon that makes him an oddly apt fit with the others. The end result is the stuff of Toby Keith’s nightmares. Stream it at Willie’s website.
