For this memorable occasion, Willie wears fashion designer John Varvatos on the To All The Girls… album materials. Varvatos is also 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.
To All The Girls… is Willie Nelson’s second new album release in the artist’s 80th birthday year.
To All The Girls… is the third new Willie Nelson album since his historic deal with Legacy Recordings was announced in February 2012.
Heroes, Willie’s first album 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 on April 16, 2013 (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.
2013 is a banner year for the pop country patriarch who, in addition to releasing three essential new albums in 16 months, penned a rollicking 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.
