1989 was a year of profound change, being not only the year that the Berlin Wall came down, but also the year that a lot of new stars took over the airwaves on American country radio stations. The old generation of country stars didn't suddenly disappear all at once. A few disappeared quickly, while some were able to compete successfully with the new stars. Indeed, Reba McEntire and George Strait were so successful that their career outlasted many of the names. But for most of the old stars, 1989 was the beginning of the end of their career. In Willie Nelson's case, his 1989 album (this one) provided him with his final number one country hit (Nothing I can do about it now), but the country radio stations that had previously been so enthusiastic about his music became somewhat less interested thereafter. Not that Willie went quietly, as he continued to make great albums in the nineties (Clean shirt, Across the borderline and Teatro among them) but his days as a regular hit-maker were ending. So, despite a number one hit, this album is often ignored.

The big hit opens the album and shows Willie in reflective mood. Whatever mistakes he'd made in his past, he can't do anything about it - an obvious but simple truth, but the song is well-crafted and deserved its number one status. It sets the mood of the album, most of which is mellow and reflective. It is one of two songs here from the pen of Beth Neilsen Chapman, who was then just beginning to make a real impact as a country songwriter - she wrote her first number one country hit in 1987.when Tanya Tucker recorded Strong enough to bend.

Other highlights include the title track, If I were a painting, Spirit, There you are and the second Beth Nielsen Chapman song, If my world didn't have you.

Occassionally, once in great while the material and the performer create something spectular. Never to be forgotten,
and never to be repeated in a lifetime, eg: streisand paring with Barry Gibb on "Guilty" This CD is so beautiful and the legendary Nelson at his peak. If you like Willie, find this CD although out of print you can still find copies out there from Market Sellers on AMAZON. It's a keeper forever, simply timless and always will be

Willie Nelson's "A Horse Called Music", is Perhaps Willie's Best Work! This Album is a MUST for any Willie Nelson Fan. WIllie's brilliant guitar playing will Definitely take you for a ride. I Rate this album Five Stars... Why? Because it is Damn Good, That's why... So instead of going to the mall today and settling for some new flash in the pan artist, Please Take The Time To Special Order This Brilliant Album By This Country Legend, Willie Nelson. You Won't Regret It!

Songs are just so touching and honest. This album is worth more than 5 stars. New CDs are hard to find but I got mine from Amazon. Album art is 5*.

A new version of 'Horse called music' song with Lucas Nelson and Merle Haggard is available in "Heroes".Also look for the video of the new version where Willie watches the album art.

Horse Called Music if you are searching for a great album and not one that has the usual hype around it then this is it. Willie has made some great albums but I rate this as one of the best if not THE BEST it never had any airplay and that is due mainly to how the music business is run. Not only are the songs the guitar playing great but also the production, this album is almost 23 years old but is one I play as often as I can and one I will keep playing SIMPLY WILLIE AT HIS BEST GO BUY

A truly great Willie album that takes you to another place when you listen to the songs and lyrics.
Any fan of the old west and the mystique of the lonely plains in the days of the Indians and modern times will relate.
Im lucky to to live in Texas where Willie revered and his music plays like an anthem to our great state.
this album is great!

I searched for years for a copy of this CD (before mp3) and was finally able to locate it some time ago. I LOVE this CD and enjoy listening to it time and time again. It's not one of the catchy cd's with fast paced music so be prepared. Without a doubt this was money well spent.

Music with feeling the way only Willie can perform it! I listen to this one more than most of my other Willie Nelson recordings.
