Posted on 02/21/2006 9:30:42 PM PST by John Semmens
Country singer Willie Nelson chose Valentine's Day to release the gay-themed song "On the Rod Again." The Texas country icon sings about love among men on the range. The song aims to show Mr. Nelson's support for gays, particularly to conservative country-music fans.
The song was unveiled on Howard Stern's Sirius Satellite Radio show. Stern provided accompanying grunts and squeals in the studio as the record was played.
The timing of the song's release coincides with a time when the idea of gay cowboys is being discussed throughout the media in response to the success of the Academy Award-nominated film "Brokeback Mountain."
Nelson said the song was a tribute to the cowboys who reared him when he was young.

Some old has beens will do most anything to grab some final rays, from most anyone.

If ever there was a scarecrow who looks emaciated with AIDS it is Willie Nelson.
LOL! Your satire is a'head' of the times...
Brokeback Willie Vanilli
I wish Waylon were still alive. He'd be sure to have a one-line zinger about his one-time friend's pathetic foolishness. Willie's jumped a few too many sharks.
