Stardust is the twenty-second studio album by Willie Nelson, released in 1978. Nelson asked Booker T. Jones, who was his neighbor in Malibu at the time, to arrange a version of "Moonlight in Vermont". Impressed with Jones's work, Nelson asked him to produce the entire album
Willie Nelson was already an outlaw country legend by 1978, but Stardust, his best-selling album, made him a household name. Released long before albums of jazz standards were a viable option for artists in other genres, Nelson’s weatherbeaten croon and lyrical acoustic guitar sound right at home on classics like All of Me, Don’t Get Around Much Anymore, and Someone to Watch Over Me. Recorded in nine days and produced by Booker T. Jones, Stardust is one of the earliest indications of Nelson’s gift for brilliant reinventions. Stardust Willie Nelson.
Entertainer Willie Nelson described this deceptively simple album as a tribute to "the music I heard growing u. Tunes like the title track, "Georgia on My Mind," "Blue Skies" and "Someone to Watch Over Me" are indeed testimonials to the best of pre-rock and roll, "songbook" era pop music. Even better, Nelson knows how to sell things songs with his plaintive voice, assisted by just a handful of instrumentalists. I think everyone interested in pop music or Americana should own this album . I had forgotten how magical Willie Nelson's voice worked with these superb arrangements of classic pop and torch songs on Stardust. I hadn't heard the album in, perhaps, 20 years and it knocked me out even more than before. My current wife, who had never heard this album, loves it as well.

Willie Nelson has been around for so long that he’s essentially transformed into country music’s own version of a tall tale. Unfortunately, that often means he gets reduced to a punchline, whether for that whole tax evasion thing or his veritable status as Nashville’s pot-smoking grandpa. But Nelson is also one of music’s biggest living legends. Most know him for the songs he turned into some of country music’s most recognizable standards, from Always on My Mind to On the Road Again. What they may not know is that Nelson is one of the music industry’s most prolific album makers
