Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard Reveal ‘It’s All Going to Pot’ Music Video
Oh, how we (and every other country music fan) wish we were able to sit in on the recording of Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard's "It's All Going to Pot." The singers just premiered the music video for the song -- and it's a perfect fit for its debut date of 4/20.
The clip shows Haggard and Nelson doing what they were born to do: sing, play guitar and, of course, smoke a little pot. It looks like they had a riot recording the song; the music video takes place in the recording studio, and even though the singers are in their seventh and eighth decades of life, respectively, they're still going strong, working tirelessly to bring an entertaining song to fans.
And it sure is a one-of-a-kind song, paying homage to marijuana through music: "All the whiskey in Lynchburg, Tenn. / Just couldn't hit the spot / I've got a hundred dollar bill / You can keep your pills / 'Cause it's all going to pot," they sing.
"It's All Going to Pot" is the first single off their new album, Django and Jimmie, produced by Buddy Cannon. It's a 14-track record that is meaningful to both Nelson and Haggard.
Haggard adds, “It’s really good; I think it’s the best one we’ve done. We didn’t really do any swing, per se, we just did straight-ahead songs that we felt good about.”
