For the Good Times: A Tribute to Ray Price finds Willie paying tribute to one of his most legendary influences and longtime friend, Ray Price. The album debuts Willie's new interpretations of 12 songs Price made famous, including "Heartaches by the Number," "Crazy Arms," "Night Life," "Faded Love" and "For the Good Times." It was produced and arranged by longtime Nelson and Price friends/collaborators, Fred Foster and Bergen White.
For the Good Times showcases the breadth of Price's output by featuring Nelson's unique approach in his tribute. For the more traditional country songs, Nelson and Foster recruited the Grammy Award-winning Western swing outfit The Time Jumpers, featuring such luminaries as guitarist Vince Gill and pedal steel player Paul Franklin.
