Shotgun Willie is the sixteenth studio album by Willie Nelson released in 1973. The recording marks a change of style for Nelson, who later stated that the album "cleared his throat". When Nelson refused to sign an early extension of his contract with RCA in 1972, the label decided not to release any further recordings.

Willie Hugh Nelson (born April 29, 1933) is an American singer, songwriter, musician, actor, producer, author, poet, and activist. The critical success of the album Shotgun Willie (1973), combined with the critical and commercial success of Red Headed Stranger (1975) and Stardust (1978), made Nelson one of the most recognized artists in country music.

Shotgun Willie is a great album, one that I didn't discover until almost 40 years after its release, and thank God I did! Over the last couple of months I've been delving into music that I failed to notice the first time around-mainly because I was just a teenager and into other genres. Now I grew up on everything from Johnny Cash to Jimi Hendrix, as I like to say, but somehow missed Waylon and Willie (I also was turned on to Kris Kristoferson by my older brother)  . Shotgun Willie is a great place to start in learning his music leading into his music of today (after having first bought a CD of his early years showcasing his Grand Old Opry performances). It might be almost 40 years old, but it was like a breath of fresh musical air when I first heard it, and it still is.

Shotgun Willie encapsulates Willie's world view and music, finding him at a peak as a composer, interpreter, and performer. This is laid-back, deceptively complex music, equal parts country, rock attitude, jazz musicianship, and troubadour storytelling. Nelson blurs the lines between his own tunes and covers to the point that "Whiskey River," this record's best-known song, seems thoroughly original, yet it was written by Johnny Bush and Paul Stroud.
