On the Road Again

Feeling better, Willie Nelson is back in action

Willie Nelson is "feeling great" and back on the road, celebrating his latest Grammy Award and promoting his new album, "God's Problem Child," which will be available April 28, the eve of his 84th birthday.

Other than that, the living legend has nothing new to report.

Nelson will return to the stage Thursday night in San Antonio for the first time since cancelling five shows earlier this month due to what his son, Lukas, now describes as "a lingering cold."

His first album of original material in three years features 13 songs. Seven were written by Nelson, including a tribute to his late, longtime compatriot Merle Haggard ("He Won't Ever Be Gone") and a ditty dismissing rumors of his own demise, "Still Not Dead."

For a first taste of the upcoming album check out the new video for the Spanish-style ballad "A Woman's Love." (The acoustic intro is eerily reminiscent of the Eagles' "Hotel California," no?)

On Sunday, Nelson won his 12th Grammy for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album for "Summertime," last year's tribute to the music of George and Ira Gershwin.
