Sea Song from a Cowboy

Happy Birthday to Willie Nelson who turned 77 on Friday.

Our Sea Song of the Week is the title track from an album Willie put out over ten years ago, Island in the Sea.



At 77, Willie is not letting his saddle get dusty. He is on the road and also released a new album this month simply titled "Country Music". The collection of covers includes two nautical-related tracks - Seaman's Blues and Ocean of Diamonds, both of which will likely show up here in the future. But if you want to buy a hard-copy CD of Willie's new album in the next couple of weeks, you have to go to Starbucks, as they have the exclusive rights to sell the CD until the end of May. Of course, the album is already available for download at iTunes and Amazon.

Enjoy!
