Lost Highway to Release Track Exclusively at iTunes Beginning February 14

    NASHVILLE, Tenn., Feb. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- On Valentine's Day 2006, Howard
 Stern debuted the new, and quite timely, song from Willie Nelson titled
 "Cowboys Are Secretly, Frequently (Fond Of Each Other)" during his Sirius
 Satellite Radio morning program.
     "Cowboys Are Secretly, Frequently (Fond Of Each Other)" was written in
 1981 by Texas-born, NYC resident musician/songwriter Ned Sublette, long before
 gay cowboys were the current topic of conversation. Nelson recorded the song
 last year during an iTunes Originals session at his Perdernales, TX studio.
 This is the first time Nelson's version has been released.
     Since everyone is talking about the acclaimed film Brokeback Mountain and
 its Academy Award nominations, Valentine's Day seemed like the right time to
 let "Cowboys Are Secretly, Frequently (Fond Of Each Other)" be heard, and
 Howard Stern seemed the right man to debut it. Also, Nelson first mentioned
 the song on Stern's program nearly a year ago. Coincidentally, Nelson
 contributed a song to the soundtrack of the film with his rendition of "He Was
 A Friend Of Mine".
     Lost Highway will release "Cowboys Are Secretly, Frequently (Fond Of Each
 Other)" exclusively through iTunes beginning on Valentine's Day, February 14.
 Plans for a video by the Broken Lizard Comedy Troupe (Super Troopers, Club
 Dread) are in the works as well. The video will also be available for purchase
 exclusively through iTunes in the spring. Stay tuned.
