    Their new song debuts on Opie Radio Monday, according to Opie's twitter. Opie says Willie asked for this to happen. I thought Willie was Howie's pal? Is it a goof? Is Opie having Willie on, or just playing his song? I strongly doubt Merle fucking Haggard would do Opie's show, or Howie's.

    Nothing can top Pancho and Lefty. Still one of my all time favorite songs and videos. (although The Highman comes close)





    Production on the Highwayman video cost a staggering $100,000 back in 1985. Unfortunately it didn't even win Video Of The Year.

    Merle's right up there with DAC for me as far as songwriting ability goes.


    This song was written in 1969 and is as great today as it was then.

    The Highwaymen are the shit! I love em. I was very depressed when Waylon passed away.

    We analyzed 'poncho and lefty' in my philosophy class in college.

    Lefty didn't kill him but he tipped off the federales. He was so grief stricken that he ended up in a hotel in Ohio (which is how he got the money to get there).
