Willie Nelson once told “Rolling Stone Country” about his friend Ray Price, “Ray was as a close a friend as you could have. We traveled together, lived together, played music together, partied together… and had a lot of good times.”
It was those good times that inspired Willie to participate in the new album “For the Good Times: A Tribute to Ray Price.”
One of the standout tracks on the album is “Heartaches By the Number,” which Ray took to the top of the charts back in 1959.
Not only does this song bring to mind sweeter times, but it also features country legend, Vince Gill. He actually plays guitar on half of the songs on the album and offers backing vocals alongside his very own Time Jumpers band.
The compilation album is set for release on Sept. 16.
