Willie Nelson stopped shaving, grew his hair, ditched his suits and found acceptance with the hippies who bought the country rock of the Flying Burrito Brothers. Like TOMMY, RED HEADED STRANGER was a concept album, this time about a murderous preacher. His laid-back voice-and-guitar revival of "Blue Eyes Cryin' In The Rain" was a surprise US hit single, and Richard Thompson says, "I like the fact that he plays these terrible solos and leaves them alone, which takes a lot of guts these days."
Artist Overview
As a songwriter and performer, Willie Nelson has played a vital role in post-rock & roll country music. Although he didn't become a star until the mid-'70s, Nelson spent the '60s writing songs that became hits for stars like Ray Price ("Night Life"), Patsy Cline ("Crazy"), and Faron Young ("Hello Walls"), as well as releasing records on Liberty and RCA that earned him a small but devoted cult following. During the early '70s, Willie aligned himself with Waylon Jennings and the burgeoning outlaw country movement. He became a star in 1975 with the release of the album Red Headed Stranger. As a touring musician and interpretive balladeer, Nelson has remained a top attraction ever since, and retained his chart popularity. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
