Kenny Chesney Producing Willie Nelson’s Album

Kenny Chesney and Buddy Cannon are currently producing a new Willie Nelson album in Nashville — at the request of the Country Music Hall of Famer. The album includes songs written by Kris Kristofferson, Dave Matthews, Guy Clark, Jimmy Buffett, Randy Newman and Nelson, among others. The two artists met at a TV taping in 2003 when Chesney sang “The Last Thing I Needed” in honor of Nelson’s 70th birthday. No release details have been finalized, according to a representative from Lost Highway Records.
