Willie Nelson has released the video for new song, “We Are the Cowboys,” which is featured on Willie’s upcoming album, First Rose of Spring, dropping on July 3.

The tune was written and originally recorded by Billy Joe Shaver on his 1981 album, I’m Just an Old Chunk of Coal. Willie recorded the song with Shaver, Waylon Jennings and Kris Kristofferson on the 1999 album, Honk Tonk Heroes, and now almost 40 years after its initial recording, Willie has remade the tune once again.

Take a look at Willie’s new video, which was directed by his son, Micah Nelson, at the link: here
