Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard Release ‘It’s All Going to Pot’ Video
Country legends Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard have released a music video for their catchy tune, "It's All Going to Pot." The music video was released on 4/20, which is fitting given the song's title.
Fans won't be able to resist snapping their fingers and tapping their toes along with the catchy beat. The song is an homage to marijuana, with lyrics including: "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."
The music video features Haggard and Nelson singing in a recording studio, playing the guitar and smoking a little pot. Nelson recently announced his plans to create a signature marijuana line called Willie's Reserve, and this fun track could be the perfect theme song for his forthcoming brand.
“It’s All Going to Pot” is the first single off the duo's new album, Django and Jimmie, which was produced by Buddy Cannon. The 14-track record was a special project for both men. “The title track is about Django Reinhardt and Jimmie Rodgers,” Nelson says. “Both of those guys were very influential in both of our careers.”
“It’s really good; I think it’s the best one we’ve done," Haggard notes. "We didn’t really do any swing, per se, we just did straight-ahead songs that we felt good about.”
