Country music legend Willie Nelson will appear on QVC next Thursday (our sister Karen’s birthday) to pitch his new album, “Band of Brothers.”
The home shopping network will air “Willie Nelson Q Sessions Live” at 8 p.m. on June 12, QVC said Thursday. He’ll be performing songs from his new release as well as his old hits.
QVC will be selling “Band of Brothers,” which will be bundled with “Classic Willie,” a greatest-hits bonus CD compiled especially for the network.
“Not only is Willie Nelson a legend in the music industry, he is also a fan favorite among QVC viewers,” QVC Vice President of Merchandising Ken O’Brien said in a canned statement.
“We are excited to once again offer customers the chance to witness a performance by one of the greatest entertainers of our time, as well as the opportunity to order Nelson’s new album before street date.”
“Band of Brothers,” successor to “To All The Girls…,” which was released last October, is Nelson’s first album in nearly two decades to feature predominantly new, original music.
It has 14 tracks “ranging from reflective to rip-roaring, Band of Brothers is one of Nelson’s most personal albums yet,” according to QVC.
QVC viewers be be able to preview new singles including “Band of Brothers,” “The Wall” and “Wives and Girlfriends,” as well as fan favorites including “On the Road Again” and “Always on My Mind.”
The two-CD set containing “Band of Brothers” and “Classic Willie” will be available beginning June 5.
