Merle Haggard

We're working on one (album) now... and (we'll release it) as soon as we get it together

Fresh from their performance at the Grammy Awards on Sunday night (26Jan14), Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson and Merle Haggard have teamed up to record a new album.

The country music legends hit the stage at the 56th annual Grammys with Blake Shelton.

Nelson has worked with Haggard in the past and he and Kristofferson are the only surviving members of country music supergroup The Highwaymen, which also featured Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings.

A statement from Nelson reads "We're working on one (album) now... and (we'll release it) as soon as we get it together".
