Ahead of Mother’s Day, Willie Nelson has shared his take on “I’m the Only Hell My Mama Ever Raised.” The song was written by Wayne Kemp, Bobby Borchers, and Mack Vickery and popularized by outlaw Johnny Paycheck on his 1977 record Slide Off of Your Satin Sheets. Check out Willie Nelson’s rendition below.
Willie Nelson’s “I’m the Only Hell My Mama Ever Raised” will appear on the country legend’s forthcoming album First Rose of Spring. The new album comes out on July 3 (via Legacy). Last month, Nelson and his sons Lukas and Micah played “Hello Walls” on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.
