Have we been missing the signs all these years? Maybe the bandanna and the ponytail were clues. ...

Maybe the song "Cowboys are Secretly Frequently Fond of Each Other" was a teensy clue.

I wrote an email to Willie Nelsonīs website and the reply I received was:

"You should check out "Cowboys Are Frequently Secretly Fond of Each Other" from Itunes."

Totally.  He didn't even write the tune.  It completely lacks the artistry of any of his real songs (the tune itself, and the shitty production by Chesney).



I love you Laura!
You don't say much but you sure get your point across!!
I am truly laughing out loud at this one!! :laugh:  :laugh:  :laugh:

And it is the gay fans that tend to have the most money. Sorry, but that is a stereotype that happens to be true much of the time.

Its a matter of sexual minorities--who are more likely to be child-less--having a higher percentage of expendable income. We really don't make more money. And its not a stereotype, its a consumer trend.

Trust me, he will be feeling the financial pain from this atrocious blunder of his...

He won't feel anything unless he already has a significant portion of sexual minorities among his customer base, AND a significant portion of them are offended enough to stop buying his music. Of course we have no idea what those numbers look like.

And not only that, but gay people tend to throw money at their icons. Just look at Bette Midler, Cher, Madonna, Janet Jackson, hell, even Kathy Griffin. They wouldn't be where they are today if it wasn't for their gay fans. We support our icons.

Trust me, he will be feeling the financial pain from this atrocious blunder of his...

David, Old Willie hasn't been on the top 10 list in AGES !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He has had financial difficulties for ages.

I'd like to suggest that one of the good writers here put this on Willie Nelson's Wikipedia page.  There's no mention of it there.

and about this dicussion. If the song is a joke, then what exactly is the joke?

I guess one could make a case for considering it a joke on people who don't know homophobia when it's as plain as the nose on Dick Chaney's face.    :P

Or it could be a joke on those in the gay community who take themselves too seriously.
