New video finds Willie Nelson, Kacey Musgraves honky tonkin’ at the White Horse

Today Kacey Musgraves debuted a new video for the honky tonk tearjerker “Are You Sure” that finds our favorite alt-country sweetheart holding down the bar at East Austin watering hole the White Horse. Musgraves is lonely and forlorn under the disco ball until local hero and country music legend Willie Nelson steps in to take a verse.

The video was filmed over the Fourth of July weekend when Musgraves was in town for Willie’s annual picnic which returned to Austin this year for a debut showing at the Circuit of the Americas.

Willie, who’s always been very gracious about taking time to “make a picture” with his fans, posed with White Horse owner Denis O’Donnell during the shoot. “He was so kind and amazing,” O’Donnell said today.
