Willie Nelson is an artist unlike any other, and a living legend whose songs never cease to inspire unity and joy. “We Are the Cowboys” is a wonderful new cover & video from one of the most timeless stars in music history.
Willie Nelson’s version of the 1981 Billy Joe Shaver classic “We Are the Cowboys” is a track from the album First Rose of Spring that takes one on a romantic journey telling the tale of a restless outlaw in true country fashion.
While the hit has been covered by Nelson before when he collaborated with Billy Joe Shaver, Waylon Jennings, and Kris Kristofferson in 1994 but this time it’s a solo and something truly special.
The slowed-down country ballad carries a distinct country-music sound that brings with it an old-world charm. What an incredible remake.
