Willie Nelson took home the win for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album, for Summertime: Willie Nelson Sings Gershwin, at the 2017 Grammy Awards on Sunday night (Feb. 12).

Nelson’s Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album win was announced during the 2017 Grammys Premiere Ceremony, which was streamed online before the televised awards show. Unfortunately, Nelson was not at the award show to accept his award; in recent weeks, he’s canceled a number of concerts due to an undisclosed illness.

Summertime: Willie Nelson Sings Gershwin is a collection of songs penned by George and Ira Gershwin. Songs on the album include “Someone to Watch Over Me,” “I Got Rhythm” and “Love is Here to Stay,” among others. Wilson partners with Cyndi Lauper for “Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off” and with Sheryl Crow for “Embraceable You.”

Summertime: Willie Nelson Sings Gershwin was produced by Buddy Cannon and Matt Rollings and is available via Amazon and iTunes.
