Expanding on Tony Bennett’s solid-gold Duets idea, here Nelson teams up with guest artists like Merle Haggard sons Lucas and Micah, Sheryl Crow, Paul Shaffer, Billie Joe Shaver, Jamey Johnson, and the legendary Ray Price. The chief winning foot-stomper here, “Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die,” is rousingly and appropriately delivered with Kris Kristofferson and the surprisingly country-smooth Snoop Dog. A tender cover of Coldplay’s “The Scientist” offers a touching closer. May 15. Legacy Recordings (sonymusic.com). — Nancy Ford
