Willie Nelson, ‘A Horse Called Music’


Master storyteller Willie Nelson revisits his past in the video for “A Horse Called Music,” a hat tip to his 1989 album A Horse Called Music and a reimagining of its title track. In the clip, Nelson strides through the countryside, finds the chapel where he was married, rides through the small town center and watches an old film. This version of Wayne Carson’s song is warmer than Nelson’s original cover, meandering peacefully in place of the earlier version’s emotional strain. Merle Haggard and Willie’s son, Lukas, also join in on the track.

“A Horse Called Music” is from Nelson’s album Heroes, which was released in May.
