Two of country music’s biggest icons are teaming up again for a brand new album. Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson are set to release a brand new collaborative effort, Django and Jimmie, which will be their fourth studio record together.
Nelson visited Jimmy Kimmel Live as part of a series of events with South by Southwest (SXSW) last Friday (March 21), While there’s no news of the album’s release date, Nelson did tell host Jimmy Kimmel that the first single will be released on April 20
Fans of Haggard and Nelson will know what the title means. French guitar player Django Reinhardt is a longtime muse of Nelson.As for the “Jimmie” part of Django and Jimmie, it likely refers to Haggard’s love of country pioneer Jimmie Rodgers, whom he paid homage to with a 1969 tribute album, Same Train, A Different Time.
