Sir Patrick Stewart surprised us all last week by debuting a collection of classic cowboy songs ahead of Independence Day long weekend.
From such classics as “Rawhide,” “Don’t Fence Me In” and “Buttons and Bows,” the hilarious double album of 27 “smash singles” benefits the International Rescue Committee.
“This two-volume set transports you to back to a time when cattle roamed the open west, and the cowboy was king,” the infomercial’s narrator says. “With his Royal Shakespeare training Sir Stewart can jump into character and paint a picture like no other.”
Stewart first tweeted out the clever album on June 30, tweeting, “Happy 4th ‘merica, yer a mighty fine country. Luv, Cowboy Pat.”
According to his new website, PStewSings.com, Cowboy Classics Volume 1 and 2 are already sold out in vinyl and cassette format. Disappointed fans will have to settle for a five-song sample instead.
