Willie Nelson's Lost Highway
« on: July 14, 2009, 07:11:00 pm »
Willie Nelson's Lost Highway Will Include Three New Songs

A compilation of Willie Nelson's music during his time at Lost Highway Records will be released on Aug. 11 with three previously unreleased songs. The 17-track album, also titled Lost Highway, features Grammy-winning duets with Ray Price ("Lost Highway") and Lee Ann Womack ("Mendocino County Line"), as well as "Beer for My Horses," his No. 1 hit with Toby Keith. Other guests on the album include Elvis Costello, Diana Krall, Shania Twain and Lucinda Williams.

Kenny Chesney co-produced one of the previously unreleased tracks, "Ain't Going Down on Brokeback Mountain," which Nelson recorded during the sessions for his 2008 album, Moment of Forever.

The other two previously unreleased tracks -- "Superman" and "Both Sides of Goodbye" -- come from Nelson's recording sessions in 2005 with songwriter-producer Chips Moman.

(Couldn't find Willie's version--this is by someone called "Saddle Sores".)

I really hope that's not the version Willie will be singing...

The album also features "Cowboys Are Frequently Secretly Fond of Eachother"...

After doing some searching on the net, I do believe it is the same song Willie is singing.  I have to say I'm very disappointed by this.  >:(

What do other folks think of this?

Right now I'm sitting here livid.  I feel completely betrayed that Willie would sing and record such a song.  I feel as though we've lost someone who was once an ally.    Willie, you can go fuck yourself, 'cause "that shit ain't right".  I actually feel threatened and betrayed enough to remove all of his tracks off of BBM Radio.  How 'bout that?  >:(

I feel the same way. I don't even want to hear the sound of his voice ennimore. I'll stick with Bob Dylan's rendition of He was a Friend of Mine.

It is a betrayal of sorts.

Actually, I felt the same about the "Cowboys are frequently, secretly" song, even though that one predates BBM.  It equates being gay with wanting to be a woman.
