When you think of Sir Patrick Stewart, we’re assuming you think of Shakespeare and Star Trek, not cowboys and westerns. Well, change that mental image immediately, because PStew is now a singing cowboy and it’s probably the best thing ever. You read that right. Patrick Stewart is ‘Britain’s most beloved cowboy crooner’ AND he has full songs for sale.
According to the infomercial (yes, infomercial) you can get great deals on several Cowboy Pat albums like the two-volume Cowboy Classics, the ballad-heavy Songs for Lonesome Lovers and the updated sci-fi/Western hybrid, Ghost Riders in the Sky. His website offers the collection in almost any medium including vinyl, CD, cassette and even 8 track (just in case you haven’t brought your music technology into the 21st century yet). Unfortunately all but the Cowboy Classics Sampler is ‘dang shame! Sold out.’
With songs chock full of one cowboy cliché after another, this is probably the best country album you’ve ever heard. Plus, who would have thought Sir Patrick Stewart would look so comfortable in a cowboy hat and chaps? It’s clear why he is ‘long known as England’s premiere cowboy singer.’ We’ve never heard an Englishman sing cowboy tunes so well.
All proceeds from the album go to the International Rescue Committee, which responds to a variety of global humanitarian crises.
So, call that 800-number right away to get your Cowboy Pat sampler for the low, low price of $59.99! No, $29.99! No, $10.00! Or just head to the website and have a laugh at the video. Your call.
