The idea of combining Willie Nelson's patented Texas glide with some one-drop Jamaican rhythms is certainly a novel one, but the chances of it working seemed as remote as George Jones hitting Kingston and toasting "White Lightning" over a choice dubplate at the local yard. You'd have to be crazy or high to think it would work.

Band Name Willie Nelson. Album Name Countryman.

A Willie Nelson reggae album is an idea that's almost as crazy-brilliant as casting the Red-Headed Stranger as Uncle Jesse in the Dukes of Hazzard movie. For starters, both country and reggae build on outlaw imagery and class issues, making heroes of rebels and outsiders, and the sunny island rhythms have the potential to counterbalance the dark gospel sobriety of many of Nelson's songs  . Now Nelson's new label, Lost Highway Records, is finally showing it the light of day.

Ya know, I’ve listened through this album a number of times and in a wide ranging variety of environments; from parties to barbecues, from beaches to mountains, deserts, and long drives down unknown highways - and it seems to work quite wonderfully in all of them. I thoroughly respect AMG critic Steve Leggett’s opinions, and often agree with many of his reviews. But I don’t understand why he seems to have such a problem with this album working. I don’t agree at all with Leggett’s view that; “as a whole, the songs on Countryman sound woefully out of whack, neither good reggae nor good country...” It is neither country nor is it reggae. This music on this album is a true hybrid, and on that level, and as that entity, it works just fine. We are talking about Willie Nelson here after all, and “Outlaw Country” artist Nelson is a uniquely one of a kind chameleonic musical magician who constantly defies any sort of easy categorization. The only constants with Willie Nelson are that plaintive voice, that guitar, and his integrity.If you enjoy the work of Willie Nelson, and reggae, island style or tropical music that would suit beach life, boating or hanging out with friends to an album of nicely laid back but grooving tunes that feature Willie Nelson’s distinctive vocal stylings, you’ll likely appreciate this album.Renn Loren
Mixing Reggae and Country shouldn't be a bad idea, and I believe it isn't. But honestly, this one has to be amongst Nelson's worst albums ever. And not because of the music, which does work at some point, but the shameless, corny and disgusting abuse of Autotune makes it somehow embarrasing to listen to. Does an artist of this size needs using Autotune? Probably not, so I will blame it on the producer of the album. The idea was good, but in the hands of a fool it became pretty embarrasing and lame for a great artist as Willie Nelson is.

The songs seem to work here. Willie Nelson is one of a select group of artists whose approach adapts to a wide range of genres without ever losing their signature sound. Another example would be Ray Charles doing country, or Sting moving from Pop to Jazz. But in this case the styles are actually much closer than that. Reggae has always had a strong folk/country element. So it fits well with Willie here. The album highs such as "Harder they come" and the Toots Hibbert collaboration are excellent. And the other songs are at least in the "enjoyable to listen to" category. So I would recommend this album especially to any fan of country, folk, reggae, or Willie Nelson.
On first listen, I didn't love every cut, but I thought a lot of Willie's tunes worked really well. I wasn't crazy about programming "I Just Destroyed the World I'm Living In" and "You Left Me a Long, Long Time Ago" back to back...they are too similar, imho. Where was this recorded?
