WIL­LIE NEL­SON

Last Man Stand­ing (Sony)

Irish Independent - Weekend Review - - FRONT PAGE -

The ti­tle makes per­fect sense when you con­sider that the grand old man of coun­try is 85. Age truly has not with­ered him, and he is in de­fi­ant mood through­out. “I don’t want to be the last man stand­ing,” he sings on the ti­tle track. “On sec­ond thoughts, maybe I do.” These spir­ited songs are ut­terly life-af­firm­ing.
