The album features a fuller sound than the earlier album, primarily due to extra instruments. The button accordion is prominently featured on "Texican Style", and harmonica on "Home". There are horn accompaniments (trumpet, tenor and baritone sax) on several songs, including "My Way".

Willie Nelson and the boys' father, Enrique Garza, both perform on "Outlaws". Patrick Simmons of the Doobie Brothers is a co-author of "Roses".
