Love this music. Though I see other commenters do not. Just goes to show, there is something for everyone, and everything is not for everybody. When I don't like anything in this world, I always think it just is not for me; and move on. (I am Willie's age and that makes a difference....I remember his Blue Eyes Cryin' in the Rain and have liked all his stages since...)

Not quite as good as you might hope/expect. An eclectic set but too many average mid-tempo songs and lackluster duet partners. The Dolly Parton track "From Here to the Moon" is the highlight, and it's the first track -- so it's downhill from there. There are no new Willie Nelson songs here, and pointless remakes of old hits like "Always on My Mind" and "Bloody Mary Morning" don't help.However, he's in good voice for an 80-year-old guy and he holds his own. Kudos to him for continuing to make new records!

The Music CD was okay – but not one of my favorites not worth the long library wait.

"From Here to the Moon and Back," the pledge of eternal devotion (with Dolly Parton) that opens Willie Nelson's conceptual collection of duets with women, has major wedding-dance potential. But several of the pairings that follow lament unions that couldn't work. Nelson's partners, sometimes updating songs he cut years ago, span the country spectrum from folk to pop. Weepers and waltzes prevail, but standouts push beyond that: Shelby Lynne's Western swing, Alison Krauss' dark Latin tinge, Wynonna Judd's husky honky-tonk blues, Mavis Staples' Bill Withers soul cover. And Nelson holds his unmistakable own throughout, like no other 80-year-old could.
