Willie Nelson is a little like the weather in Oklahoma. If you don’t like his latest album, just wait a minute. Case in point: I was basically unimpressed by Let’s Face the Music and Dance, released in March, and I wasn’t that wild about Heroes, which came out less than a year before that. (Heroes is the one featuring a song called “Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die,” celebrating reefer with fellow celebrity pothead Snoop Dogg.)

But it’s already October, and dang if the ultraprolific octogenarian doesn’t have a new album. To All the Girls … is a collection of duets with various female singers — from venerated country queens Loretta Lynn and Dolly Parton to the new crop of Juliette Barnes wannabes and many in between. And guess what. The weather in Oklahoma just got nicer.
