I’m a closet Country & Western fan.

And not just for the titles.

“Drop Kick Me, Jesus, Through the Goalposts of Life”

“She Left Me for My Best Friend and I Miss Him”

And 102 more.  (“Tennis Must Be Your Racket ‘Cause Love Means Nothin’ To You”)

Four-times-married Willie Nelson has so many great songs, but this old one was new to me — and I thought pretty amazing.  Coming from Randy Rainbow, it could make some people nervous.  But from Willie?  “Cowboys Are Frequently Secretly Fond of Each Other.”



BONUS

And, related only by genre, how great is this 1990 performance of “Riders in the Sky?”
