Amanda Shires Announces Collaborative Album With Bobbie Nelson, Shares ‘Summertime’ Cover Featuring Willie Nelson

    Amanda Shires has announced Loving You, a collaborative record with the late Bobbie Nelson. The album, out June 23 via Silver Knife/ATO, was at Arlyn Studios in Austin, Texas with producer Lawrence Rothman. To accompany the announcement, Shires has shared a cover of George and Ira Gershwin’s classic ‘Summertime’, featuring Nelson’s brother Willie. Check it out below.

    “I first saw Bobbie playing when I was 16 or so at some festival somewhere in Texas where I grew up,” Shires said in a press release. “I saw her perform many times over the years and always admired the way she played so effortlessly and with so much strength and confidence. She radiated music. Much of my path seemed possible because I saw a woman working and making a career of music at a young age, and that woman was Bobbie Nelson.”
