Even Cowboys Can Cry
Friend of Stimpunks Aubrey Hays just released their Tiny Desk entry for 2023: “Even Cowboys Can Cry”:
This song is for anyone who has had to brave a long and lonesome road. For those of us who have had to be “cowboys” at one time or another.
Aubrey got props on Tiny Desk Top Shelf last year for their entry, “Love Didn’t Hurt You”:
