Horses & countryside make for new classic video on old Willie Nelson track
Willie Nelson has done it again. Literally. The country great's latest album, Heroes, has already spent five weeks at the top of the Americana radio charts, making it his highest charting record in three decades. The record includes a new version of "A Horse Called Music," originally featured on his 1989 album of the same name, and Nelson has released an accompanying video.
The Wayne Carson cover is softer and lighter than Nelson's original recording, but the poignancy of the song and Nelson's vocals remains. The new video clip has an authentic country vibe and finds Nelson wandering through rural sceneries, passing churches, riding his horse, heading to the "World Headquarters" to watch vintage movie footage, and, of course, playing his guitar. Nelson is joined by his son, Lukas Nelson, and fellow country legend Merle Haggard.
Willie explains his reasoning for the new video by stating, "Honestly, I was looking for an excuse to ride my horse. Every time I get a few days off, I want to jump on my horse if I can, so I really planned this video with me riding down through town, just so I could ride my horse. That's basically the end of the story."
