Man, sometimes you lose track of Colter Wall for a second then get hit in the face with some brilliance seemingly out of nowhere.
Well, good old YouTube strikes again, this time giving us a performance from 2018 of Colter singing a traditional cowboy song in the back of a pick-up truck.
A drop dead gorgeous, old Dodge D100, looks to be mid-70’s, but I’m no expert…
“Bury Me Not On The Lone Prairie” is a classic cowboy folk song, widely considered to be one of the most famous cowboy ballads of all-time. Also called “The Cowboy’s Lament,” “The Dying Cowboy,” “Bury Me Out On The Lone Prairie,” and “Oh, Bury Me Not,” it’s been covered by a who’s who of iconic singers, including Johnny Cash, Moe Bandy, and Roy Rogers.
Somehow, even though it’s recorded in a truck cabin, Colter’s performance sounds way better than so much crap we hear pushed on the radio. Which just proves, yet again, that nothing is better than raw talent, hard work, and a little bit of magic.
