Willie Nelson will sneak a new album into stores before the holiday shopping season begins. The country legend has recorded 14 classic hits from artists like Johnny Cash, George Jones and Merle Haggard. ‘Remember Me, Vol. 1′ will be available on Nov. 21.

Soundspike reports that ‘Remember Me, Vol. 2′ will be released in 2012. Nelson recorded over 30 songs with producer James Stroud, including the title track (originally by Ernest Tubb), Johnny Cash’s ‘Sunday Morning Coming Down’ Rosemary Clooney’s ‘This Old House.’ A fifteenth song, Webb Pierce’s ‘More and More,’ is included if one buys the album from iTunes.
