Willie Nelson's latest album, 'Band of Brothers,' debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Country Albums Chart.

The 14-track record also landed at No. 5 on their all-genre Top 200, making it his highest debut on the popular albums chart since 'Always on My Mind,' which peaked at No. 2 in 1982.

'Band of Brothers' features nine original songs co-written by Nelson, who says he released the record simply because he had new material.

“I got on kind of a writing kick,” Nelson notes. “It’s good to be writing again.”

'Band of Brothers' also includes five tunes made famous by other artists, including the Billy Joe Shaver song, 'The Git Go,' which is a collaboration with Jamey Johnson.

'The Wall' is the first single from Nelson's latest record.

“I had been on tour, and, the next thing you know, I hit the wall,” the Texan explains of the song. “It turns out it’s a pretty good song.”
