Not That There's Anything Wrong with That

BREITBART.COM - Nelson Releases Homage to Gay Cowboys: "Nelson Releases Homage to Gay Cowboys
Feb 14 8:37 PM US/Eastern

NASHVILLE, Tenn.

Country music outlaw Willie Nelson sang 'Mammas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys' and 'My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys' more than 25 years ago. He released a very different sort of cowboy anthem this Valentine's Day.

'Cowboys Are Frequently, Secretly (Fond of Each Other)' may be the first gay cowboy song by a major recording artist. But it was written long before this year's Oscar-nominated 'Brokeback Mountain' made gay cowboys a hot topic.

Available exclusively through iTunes, the song 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.'"

I haven't seen the movie, but from what I hear it was NOT about cowboys, it was about sheepherders. I'm sure there were plenty of gay caballeros in the Old West, but this rush to make them seem ubiquitous smacks of typical PR overkill.
