You Go, Willie!

Willie Nelsom has released a gay cowboy song. According to the BBC story-

Nelson said the release, 'Cowboys Are Secretly, Frequently (Fond of Each Other)', was timed to coincide with Oscar hopeful Brokeback Mountain. The song, originally written in 1981, was played for the first time on Howard Stern's radio show on Tuesday. "The song's been in the closet for 20 years. The timing's right for it to come out," said Nelson.

Speaking to the Dallas Morning News, Nelson's manager David Anderson, who revealed that he was gay two years ago, said he wanted the song to reflect well on the singer. "I want people to know more than anything - gay, straight, whatever - just how cool Willie is and ... his way of thinking, his tolerance, everything about him," he added.

The song will be available exclusively through the Apple iTunes music store.
