As if we needed further evidence that Willie Nelson is an American national treasure.

Dig this new track "Cowboys are Frequently Secretly (Fond of Each Other)." Yes, that's really him.

It seems that a fella named Ned Sublette wrote the song in the '80s. I recently heard Sublette interviewed on the radio, and he said that he heard Willie Nelson's voice singing it in his head when he wrote it, and that Nelson had liked it for years and had been talking about recording it ... and with the success of Nelson's work on the soundtrack for Brokeback Mountain, it seemed like the propitious moment to finally record and release it.
