03 Mar 17 Prophets & Outlaws Play for Cowboys

Email this Post Print this Post

It was not a typical Saturday night for Prophets & Outlaws who would normally have been on a faraway Texas venue stage performing for their diehard fans. Instead, they were honored to be at Gilley’s performing their rendition of the Willie Nelson classic “Our Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys” during the in memoriam presentation at the star-studded Dallas Cowboys 25-year reunion for the 1992 championship team.

This was a private charity event spearheaded by quarterback Troy Aikman with proceeds going to The United Way of Metropolitan Dallas. The event was attended not only by the 1992 team, but by members of the 1993 and 1995 teams as well. The Dallas-based band also performed an hour long original set before the ceremony commenced, and the entire experience will definitely go down as an all-star career highlight. Catch the performance video on their Twitter page here.

“People can’t imagine how literally perfectly the song ‘My Hero’s Have Always Been Cowboys’ sums up how I felt about the early 90’s football teams. Those players were my ‘high ridin’ heroes’ and still are in a lot of ways. I was honored to help pay tribute to their long lost coaches and teammates. Hopefully they won’t forget that moment just like I won’t forget so many moments they gave me.” -Matt Boggs/lead singer of PAO

PAO is no stranger to the local sports realm having had their songs played regularly at the Dallas Stars and Texas Rangers homes games. You might have also heard their songs playing in the background during locker room interviews. Their broad musical tastes, cultivated over a decade, continue to generate a huge buzz among industry folks, peers and music fans. Their latest EP “V” was released last year debuting at #21 on the iTunes R&B/Soul chart and on the country side,landed TWO music spots on the hit television drama “Nashville” within one month’s time. They have performed at other prestigious events including Larry Joe Taylor Music Fest and Music Fest in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Check tour dates here.
