Willie Nelson is showing everyone that even at 81, he's still utterly capable of making big things happen in country music -- like notching No. 1 albums. The legend's new record, 'Band of Brothers,' just debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country chart.

Not only did the album come out on top in country, but it also entered the Billboard 200 Best-Selling Albums chart at No. 5. This marks Nelson's highest debut and position on the chart since 1982, when his hit record 'Always on My Mind' notched at No. 1 for four weeks.

'Band of Brothers' is a double big win for Nelson -- he hasn't had a No. 1 country album on the Billboard Country chart since 1986, when 'The Promiseland' nabbed the top spot.

The new 14-track record holds nine songs co-written by Nelson and one cover of Vince Gill's 'Whenever You Come Around'. Also included is Billy Joe Shaver’s ‘The Git Go,’ a collaboration with Jamey Johnson. With introspective songs like 'The Wall' and more upbeat tracks like 'Band of Brothers,' Nelson's new album spans a wide range of emotions, all delivered with the singer's trademark sound.

Congrats to Nelson on his No. 1 record!
