As we approach Mother’s Day on Sunday, Willie Nelson has shared a new recording that hears the famous country guitarist covering “I’m the Only Hell My Mama Ever Raised”, originally penned by Wayne Kemp, Bobby Borchers, and Mack Vickey. The cover is set to appear on Nelson’s forthcoming 70th studio album, First Rose of Spring, which was originally scheduled for an April 24th release but has since been pushed back to July 3rd.

The new single is a lively cowboy tune which gallops along with a sturdy tempo as led by Nelson’s vocals which are joined by harmonicas and pedal steel for a feel-good listening experience. Knowing the guitarist’s life-long love for cannabis, it brings a smile to one’s face to hear Nelson sing out, “She told me not to smoke it/But I did and it took me far away.”

Listen to Nelson’s take on “I’m the Only Hell My Mama Ever Raised” via the song’s crafty new lyric video below.

Although he hasn’t been rushing to get his new studio out to his fans, Nelson has kept himself busy during this ongoing pause on live music events by hosting online music events for his annual Luck Reunion festival along with last month’s “Come And Toke It” all-star virtual variety show for 420.
