Late-era Willie

I’ve spent the 90 minutes or so watching countdowns of greatest “this or that” songs.  The most recent one was country songs, and while Willie Nelson received two spots on that top 10 list, they only barely alluded to two of his late-era strokes of liberalism sure to have ruffled the feathers of country radio.

The first was his cover of Pansy Division’s “Cowboys are Frequently Secretly Fond of Each Other”.  His recording was timed for the release of Brokeback Mountain, if that’s any indication…


Another had the classic country sounds, but featured a guest verse by none other than Snoop Dogg.  It’s titled “Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die”.
