The title track "Ride Me Back Home" a song co-written by Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame member Sonny Throckmorton expresses a love for horses and their spirituality. "Sonny lives right by Willie's Luck studio," long-time friend/producer/musical compadre Buddy Cannon pointed out. "He said he wrote that song because he was over there and saw Willie's horses. I don't even know if Willie knows that or not." The horses to which Cannon refers are a group of more than 60 that Willie has adopted over the years, rescuing them from the slaughterhouse and giving them a home on his "Luck" ranch.
Earlier this year, Willie Nelson's MY WAY, his musical homage to Frank Sinatra (and 12th Legacy album), took home the Grammy Award for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album and became Willie's 13th Grammy win.
