The award-winning Nelson released his most recent studio effort, "Heroes," in mid-May via Legacy Records. The Buddy Cannon-produced album contains classic country songs, along with new songs written by Nelson and his son, Lukas. The set features guest musicians Merle Haggard, Sheryl Crow, Billy Joe Shaver, Jamey Johnson, Ray Price and Snoop Dogg, among others.

The latest release marks the first album of Nelson's new long-term deal with Sony Music, which currently owns Columbia Records, Nelson's label for 20 years of his early career.
