Ian Munsick and Cody Johnson’s new collaboration, “Long Live Cowgirls,” is here and it definitely lives up to the hype

Out now, the track finds Munsick and Johnson crooning over their love for cowgirls and gives shout-outs to legends like John Wayne and Chris LeDoux. 

“Well, she rode in them wagons when the wild west was won/ Took the canyons and badlands and made them her home/ She’s boots on, LeDoux songs, snaps on her pearls/ Long Live Cowgirls,” they sing on the chorus.

“Cowgirls are the more impressive people on this planet,” Munsick shared in a statement. “Not only do they share all the qualities of cowboys, they do it with grace and finesse. Taming the unknown, they survived and thrived through our nation’s history. The cowgirl legacy lives on today and deserves as many songs as we can give. I’m just happy to sing mine with someone who feels the same way I do.”

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 previously said. “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” was co-written by Munsick alongside Aby Gutierrez and Phil O’Donnell. Click above to listen.
