Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson and Merle Haggard Plan Album Together

Billboard Magazine's Keith Caulfield recorded an interview with the iconic threesome of Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson and Merle Haggard prior to their Grammy appearance this past Sunday in which they confided that they have plans of recording a trio album sometime in 2014 together.
"We're working on one now, yeah," Nelson said, adding that they'll release it "as soon as we get it together."
This isn't the first rumor of the threesome working together. Back in 2011, Haggard told Rolling Stone that the trio's working name was The Musketeers and that there was an interest doing a project together.
"We got to eat a little something together. We didn’t know what the hell this food was, but we thought it was funny. We (Merle and Willie) talked about doing that together, but with the presence of Kris, we talked about the three of us doing it. I’m sure if we’re healthy and live to do it, we’ll do it. We thought about the title: the Musketeers. You know, because there’s the three of us. We’ll come up with some little way of describing ourselves I guess and put it together into a show."
