When asked to name his favorite singer, American music icon Willie Nelson has always cited Frank Sinatra. And the “Chairman of the Board” often expressed his mutual admiration.
Now Willie has recorded an entire album in homage to his musical hero, longtime friend and fellow titan of the American Songbook. My Way features swinging renditions of popular standards associated with Ol’ Blue Eyes, including “Fly Me to the Moon” and “Night And Day,” a duet with Norah Jones on “What Is This Thing Called Love” and pensive readings of “Summer Wind,” “It Was a Very Good Year” and, of course, the classic title track.
In celebration of My Way’s release this Friday, September 14, SiriusXM will kick off a celebration that runs throughout the weekend on its exclusive channels associated with the two musical legends, Willie’s Roadhouse (Ch. 59) and Siriusly Sinatra (Ch. 71).
Willie’s Roadhouse will play a song from My Way each hour throughout the weekend, along with exclusive commentary from Willie. Siriusly Sinatra will also feature songs and comments from Willie during the weekend, and throughout the following week.
