Willie Nelson has added more stops to his in-progress and self-described "Old Farts and Jackass" tour, which bookends the late April release of his latest collection, "Let's Face the Music and Dance."

Since last check, another 14 shows have scattered throughout the itinerary, which continues with a Jan. 30 performance in Athens, GA, and crisscrosses the nation through a June 22 show in Rochester, NY.

The country legend, who will celebrate his 80th birthday April 30, will reveal his latest studio album, "Let's Face the Music and Dance," April 15 via Legacy Recordings. The collection, which follows last year's "Heroes," was recorded at Pedernales Recording Studio in Austin, TX, with the Family -- sister/pianist Bobbie Nelson, drummer Paul English and harmonica player Mickey Raphael -- as well as guitarist Billy English, bassist Kevin Smith, B-3 organist Jim Brown and Willie's son Micah on occasional percussion.
