Orville Peck and Willie Nelson Revive a Country Classic with a Message of Inclusivity in "Cowboys Are Frequently Secretly Fond Of Each Other"

Orville Peck, the masked cowboy with a voice like no other, has teamed up with country legend Willie Nelson to deliver a powerful rendition of "Cowboys Are Frequently Secretly Fond Of Each Other." This collaboration is more than just a musical endeavor, it's a testament to the importance of inclusivity and acceptance in the world of country music.



In a time where the LGBTQIA+ community faces ongoing challenges, Orville Peck finds solace in having allies like Willie Nelson, who stand proudly beside them. Nelson, who covered the song in 2006, felt that its message was more relevant than ever in today's society. His decision to collaborate with Peck on this track not only pays homage to the song's history but also highlights the importance of inclusivity and acceptance in country music.


The music video for the duet features clips of queer men and women having a good time in a saloon, interwoven with scenes of Nelson and Peck singing under a tree at Nelson's Luck Ranch. The video's joyful and inclusive nature reflects the spirit of the song and its message of acceptance.



Peck, who is now a Warner Records artist, plans to include "Cowboys Are Frequently Secretly Fond Of Each Other" on his upcoming duets album, Stampede. This album, featuring collaborations with several of Peck's friends, promises to be a celebration of unity and acceptance in the country music scene.


In addition to his album, Peck will embark on an extensive Stampede Tour this summer, bringing his unique blend of country music and queer representation to audiences across North America. The tour will feature guest appearances by Nikki Lane and the War and Treaty, further highlighting the diversity and inclusivity of Peck's musical vision.



The collaboration between Orville Peck and Willie Nelson is not just a musical endeavor; it's a celebration of diversity and acceptance in the world of country music. By reviving this country classic, Peck and Nelson send a powerful message: everyone deserves to be seen, heard and accepted for who they are.
