The collection has 12 tracks and has shades of a 1957 composition called Family Bible that tells the touching story of Willie’s grandma reading the Bible. It was also one of the first songs that he sold. This track had given him the money to go to Nashville. Some would call it divine intervention.

This fresh version doesn’t have the polish of the 1971 original with its gloss and pedal-steel guitar. Instead, it is a warm offering. Willie Nelson’s voice trembles sweetly along with the voice of his kids. Daughters Paula and Amy contribute backing vocals on the songs, adding to the gospel-choir feeling.

He recalls his youth in the 1930s with a noticeable warmth and fondness tangible. It is celebrating the family coming together than its religious link. Son Lucas leads in a couple of songs while Willie and son come together for 3 songs.

The arrangements have been kept simple and center around Bobbie’s piano while Raphael paints the background with his harmonica accents.

Most songs are short, with all but 2 locking at under 3 minutes. It all adds up to 30 minutes for the 12 songs.
