Willie Nelson has appeared on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’, which has been broadcast from Austin, Texas this past week at the city’s SXSW music festival.
As part of the late-night show’s SXSW coverage, country legend Nelson sang a duet of ‘To Austin, I Can’t Love You More’ with the host. The song featured lyrics such as “To all the Lone Star beers I drank”.
Nelson also participated in a “pot quiz”, a test on subjects that cannabis smokers are considered to be knowledgeable on. The singer answered the question of ‘What’s the highest mountain in the world’ correctly and then replied “that’d be me” when asked who the highest musician was. Watch beneath.
Meanwhile, Neil Young is to make a new album with Willie Nelson’s sons, Lukas and Micah Nelson. The singer-songwriter revealed he’s currently working on the album and suggested possible title ‘The Monsanto Years’.
“I’m working on another album now that I’m going to be doing with Willie Nelson’s sons”, Young said. “It’s an upbeat review of the situation”. Monsanto is the agriculture company Young has been publicly battling for years. The singer boycotted Starbucks last year over the coffee company’s involvement with Monsanto in a lawsuit against the state of Vermont’s new requirements to label genetically modified ingredients.
Neil Young’s 34th album, ‘A Letter Home’, was released in March 2014 on Jack White’s Third Man Records label, while a follow-up, titled ‘Storytone’, followed in November of the same year.
