Not only are the Nelson's incredibly talented, but they are a family with really big hearts! We love it! 

In 1971 The Rolling Stones released the song "Wild Horses" from their album Sticky Fingers. In 2004, the song ranked #334 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. What a classic song!

We have a feeling that no one really thought Willie Nelson would one day cover the song, but he did. And not only did he cover "Wild Horses" and cover it well, but he brought his family along to join him! To add a little more awesome to this already amazing rendition, they sang it for a cause, to support the rights of wild and domestic horses. OK, our hearts have melted!!

Wille, along with his children Paula Nelson, Amy Nelson, Lukas Nelson, Micah Nelson and Susie Nelson, sang their hearts out in this rare cover in the hopes of raising money for the American Wildlife Institute

On his website, Willie speaks to why the family feels so strongly about protecting the horses. He says, 

The BLM (Bureau of Land Management) has been rounding them up at an alarming rate, supposedly for their own good. Sadly, there are more wild horses in holding pens than in the wild. Something is wrong with that, so we must act now before the BLM has managed these magnificent animals into extinction. It’s time for the cowboys to stand up for the horses.

Wow! We love how passionate the Nelson family is about wildlife, and what we love even more is that they came together to stand up for what they believe in

Check out the video below and we're sure you'll love the Nelson family's rendition of "Wild Horses" as much as we did! 

LYRICS BELOW

Childhood living is easy to do
The things you wanted I bought them for you
Graceless lady you know who I am
You know I can't let you slide through my hands
Wild horses couldn't drag me away
Wild, wild horses, couldn't drag me away
I watched you suffer a dull aching pain
Now you decided to show me the same
No sweeping exits or offstage lines
Could make me feel bitter or treat you unkind
Wild horses couldn't drag me away
Wild, wild horses, couldn't drag me away
I know I dreamed you a sin and a lie
I have my freedom but I don't have much time
Faith has been broken, tears must be cried
Let's do some living after we die
Wild horses couldn't drag me away
Wild, wild horses, we'll ride them some day
Wild horses couldn't drag me away
Wild, wild horses, we'll ride them some day
