“Long Live Cowgirls” was co-written by Munsick alongside Aby Gutierrez and Phil O’Donnell.
According to a press release, the much-anticipated track will feature lyrics such as: “Like a paint-colored mustang, she’s fast and she’s wild / Stop a runaway freight train with her high-country smile / She’s tough as December, salt-of-the-Earth / make you fall like September, long live cowgirls.”
Munsick and Johnson first teamed up in the fall of 2021 when Munsick was a special guest on Johnson’s headlining tour.
“When I think of modern country and western music, I think of Cody Johnson,” Munsick shared in a statement. “The way he pays respect to the tradition of the genre yet puts his own stamp on it is what has drawn me to his music for the last 10 years. ‘Long Live Cowgirls’ is a testament to the western way of life and how it’s still thriving today. There’s no one out there who represents that lifestyle better than CoJo.”
“Long Live Cowgirls” is available for pre-save now and officially drops on Friday, January 28.
