Watch Willie and Merle Get Baked in ‘It’s All Going To Pot’

Merle Haggard has “high” expectations for his new album with Willie Nelson.

With marijuana becoming increasingly legal and far less taboo, who better to sing its anthem than pot-enthusiast Willie Nelson and longtime friend Merle Haggard. “It’s All Going To Pot,” written by Buddy Cannon, Jamey Johnson and Larry Shell could not have come at a more appropriate time.

The duo’s upcoming album, Django & Jimmiedue out June 2nd, will feature new songs and covers of classic songs. “Willie sang like he was a teenager,” said Haggard. “It’s really good; I think it’s the best we’ve done.” 

The album will include the pot-progressive song along with 13 other tracks, including a cover of Bob Dylan’s “Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right.”

To summarize: Merle and Willie will release the new album Django & Jimmie exactly 32 years  after “Pancho and Lefty.” Say that three times fast, and then watch this video of their new song.
