Red Headed Stranger is the eighteenth studio album by American outlaw country singer Willie Nelson and released in 1975. After the wide success of his recordings with Atlantic Records, coupled with the negotiating skills of his manager, Neil Reshen, Nelson signed a contract with Columbia Records, a label that gave him total creative control over his works

Willie Nelson's Red Headed Stranger perhaps is the strangest blockbuster country produced, a concept album about a preacher on the run after murdering his departed wife and her new lover, told entirely with brief song-poems and utterly minimal backing. It's defiantly anticommercial and it demands intense concentration - all reasons why nobody thought it would be a hit, a story related in Chet Flippo's liner notes to the 2000 reissue. It was a phenomenal blockbuster, though, selling millions of copies, establishing Nelson as a superstar recording artist in its own right

Red Headed Stranger, Willie Nelson’s 18th studio album, arrived in the world on May Day, 1975, to little fanfare. It would prove to be an ominous year. Denver topped mainstream country charts with his friendly ditty Thank God I’m a Country Boy, which traded places with the lush, bright, radio-friendly productions of Glen Campbell’s Rhinestone Cowboy, and Linda Ronstadt’s When Will I Be Loved. It was the year of Tonight’s the Night, Blood on the Tracks, Physical Graffiti, Metal Machine Music, Zuma, Horses, and Born to Run. And it was the year that Willie Nelson finally signed a record deal that allowed him quote artistic control endquote as he described it to Rolling Stone.

The Red Headed Stranger completes of the story of the Stranger’s time in Montana. Nelson did not write the song, but it served as the basis for the rest of the album. A song originally recorded in 1954 by Arthur Guitar Boogie Smith, Nelson had performed it in the 1950s while hosting a radio program in Fort Worth. Decades later, his wife encouraged him to write and compile an album describing both the backstory and what happened after. The lyrics need no decoding, of course, but they do perfectly describe the idea of western justice in the 19th century
