Willie Nelson is paying tribute to the late Frank Sinatra with his upcoming album “My Way,” which is full of Nelson’s takes on Sinatra standards.

In an interview with Dan Rather in 2016, Nelson referred to Sinatra as his favorite singer.

“I’m a huge Frank Sinatra fan. He’s my favorite singer. I’ve been listening to him for many, many years,” Nelson told Rather during the interview. “And I loved the way he phrased – that he kind of sung it the way he wanted to…..I liked that, and felt like it was easy for me to do.”
