    KINGSTON, Jamaica — Country music icon Willie Nelson is trying something a little different.

    Nelson, 72, will release a long-awaited reggae album, Countryman in July. He shot video in Jamaica this month for a cover of Jimmy Cliff's reggae classic The Harder They Come and Johnny and June Carter Cash's country music classic I'm a Worried Man.
    "Willie started the project 10 years ago when he first came to Jamaica, but it's only been completed now," Mike Cacia, who worked on the album videos, said Thursday.

    Nelson, 72, began production on Countryman in 1995. The project was shelved when the country star switched labels, and revived in 2004 after he signed on with Nashville-Tenn.-based Lost Highway Records.

    Cacia manages reggae singer Toots Hibbert, who appears in The Harder They Come video and sings on the 12-track CD, which Lost Highway will release July 12.

    Really this makes a lot of sense. Willie has the long hair and smokes more weed than anyone this side of Jamaica. Looks like a perfect fit to me.
