Willie Nelson shared a video for “We Are The Cowboys.” The song will land on the country icon’s upcoming 70th solo album, First Rose Of Spring.

Willie’s friend Billy Joe Shaver originally recorded “We Are The Cowboys” for his 1981 album, I’m Just an Old Chunk of Coal. Willie, Billy Joe, Waylon Jennings and Kris Kristofferson also included the tune on their 1999 album, Honky Tonk Heroesw. The stellar song begins with the usual country subject matter — Texas, Colorado, cowboys, horses — but ends on an uplifting, inclusive note delivered in a way only Willie Nelson can.
