An atmospheric soulful showcase of beautifully-written songs and poignant performances, First Rose Of Spring is the artist's first new release since winning the 2020 Best Country Solo Performance Grammy Award--Willie's 10th overall, not including his Grammy Legend and Lifetime Achievement Awards--for "Ride Me Back Home," the title track from his 2019 Legacy Recordings release. The previous year, My Way, Willie's musical homage to Frank Sinatra took home the Grammy for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album.

Premiering 11 new Willie Nelson studio performances and featuring original artwork created by Willie's son Micah, First Rose Of Spring finds Willie working again with longtime friend and producer Buddy Cannon and debuts two new songs co-written by the pair: "Blue Star" and "Love Just Laughed."
Alongside his new compositions on the album, Willie pays musical tribute to a variety of pop and country songwriters and performers, interpreting songs penned by Toby Keith ("Don't Let The Old Man In"), Billy Joe Shaver ("We Are The Cowboys") and Pete Graves ("Just Bummin' Around" - a song recorded by Jimmy Dean, Dean Martin and others).
