WILLIE NELSON - what can you say that has not been said about a living legend such as Willie Nelson ?
One thing most people don't know is how influential Gospel has been for Willie Nelson and his sister Bobbie. From their childhood in the cotton-farming country of Abbott, Texas, Willie and Bobbie were raised with good country Gospel music, and the soulfulness of that upbringing has permeated their lives ever since.
On "Farther Along", Bobbie and Willie Nelson hark back to their spiritual and musical roots by bringing to you 18 of their favorite Gospel songs. Such songs as Lily Of The Valley, I'll Fly Away, Old Time Religion, Swing Low Sweet Chariot and 14 other comforting and comfortable classics heard here reflect the background they come from - the Down-to-Earth, Salt-of-the-Earth, Hard-Working country - just like so many of the good people that have enjoyed Willie Nelson's music for all these years.
