“Gettin’ hard to watch my pals check out,” sings country music icon Willie Nelson, reflecting on the deaths of his peers like Merle Haggard while celebrating life in the title track of his new record. Last Man Standing comes out on April 27th, two days before Nelson turns 85, and though the song’s subject matter can be morbid, in typical Nelson style, it’s infused with lyrical wit and toe-tapping energy. 

Watch the music video for the song below. Last Man Standing will be released via Legacy Recordings, and you can pre-order the record here and check out the track list below.
