Yes, it's good to see Willie Nelson back in Billboard's Country Top 10 with "Beer for My Horses," but as occasionally occurs (er ... Rob Thomas?), his choice of duet partner is somewhat lacking. Not because Toby Keith has been less than gentlemanly toward Natalie Maines, or even because he's a Sooner, but because Keith's "Who's Your Daddy?" video puts only one degree of separation between Willie and cornpone crackpot Cledus T. Judd. Unbeknown to many, Nelson and Keith's hit collaboration went through several name changes before the duo arrived at its final, ASPCA-alarming title.
"Bloody Iraqi Morning"
"An Outlaw Ain't Nothin' but a Paycheck"
"My Heroes Have Always Been Assholes"
"Mammas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Fascists"
"Ain't It Funny How Credibility Slips Away"
"Are You Absolutely Sure Hank Done It This Way?"
"Angel Flying Too Close to the No-Fly Zone"
