Country legend Willie Nelson will release his new album Ride Me Back Home on June 21. Ahead of the album's release, Nelson has shared the title track. "Ride Me Back Home," written by Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame member Sonny Throckmorton, his daughter Debby, Joe Manual and Lucinda Hinto, was inspired by the horses Nelson has rescued over the years.

Ride Me Back Home was produced by Nelson's longtime collaborator Buddy Cannon. The album features a cover of Guy Clark's "My Favorite Picture of You," Billy Joel's "Just the Way You Are" and Mac Davis's "It's Hard to Be Humble," which features Lukas and Micah Nelson.
