This time, it is with his new album Band of Brothers, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Albums charts, for the week of July 5. This marks his first chart-topping country album since The Promiseland, which was released on Columbia Records, peaked at No. 1 in 1986.
His latest CD also landed in the Top 5 on the Billboard 200 all-genre album charts.
Nine out of its 14 tracks were co-written by Nelson himself, and it includes a cover of the Vince Gill-penned single "Whenever You Come Around," as well as "The Git Go," a duet with neo-traditionalist country star Jamey Johnson.
On June 10, Nelson played a show at Radio City Music Hall with Alison Krauss and Union Station, as well as Kacey Musgraves.
Last year, the country living legend performed a concert at the NYCB Theatre at Westbury, which was well-received, as Digital Journal previously reported.
