Artists and songwriters reflected in Nelson’s versions of their songs include Ernest Tubb, Johnny Cash,
George Jones, Merle Haggard, Kris Kristofferson, Rosemary Clooney, Porter Wagoner and Ray Price. The
first volume, out Nov. 21, is drawn from Nelson’s sessions with longtime friend and producer James
Stroud, which yielded more than 30 songs. Remember Me, Vol. 2 is scheduled to be released next year.

In addition to Nelson’s incomparable vocal stylings, each track benefits from the work of Nashville’s top
musicians in a band that features Eddie Bayers (drums), David Hungate (bass), Brent Mason (electric
guitar), Biff Watson (acoustic guitar), Mickey Raphael (harmonica), Sonny Garrish (steel guitar), John
Hobbs (piano/keyboards), Aubrey Haynie (fiddle/mandolin) and Wes Hightower and Cindy Walker
(background vocals). Jerry Puckett and Chris Collins also guest on the sessions.
