Willie Nelson Releases Gay Cowboy Song

*willie_nelson_thumb1.jpgWillie Nelson has released “Cowboys Are Frequently, Secretly (Fond of Each Other)”, which may be the first gay cowboy song by a major recording artist. The song, which debuted Tuesday on Howard Stern’s satellite radio show, features choppy Tex-Mex style guitar runs and Nelson’s deadpan delivery of lines like, “What did you think all them saddles and boots was about?” and “Inside every cowboy there’s a lady who’d love to slip out” and “if sexiness was corn, your ass would be Iowa.” Amazingly, I only made that last line up.

But what could be hotter than the combination of Willie Nelson and homo-erotic love? I had no idea country music was full of so much rampant homesexuality. I guess the ten-gallon hats and chaps should’ve tipped me off. That, and being hit on buy some guy calling himself the Bone Ranger.
