Watch: Willie Nelson Debuts New Song,’Vote ‘Em Out,’ At Beto O’Rourke Rally

During a live performance at Beto O’Rourke’s rally on Saturday night in Austin, Texas, country music legend Willie Nelson debuted a surprise political anthem for the state’s Democratic Senate candidate.

The country rock star finished his headlining set with a premiere of “Vote ‘Em Out,” a rallying cry to get voters to the polls.

“The biggest gun we got is called the ballot box,” Nelson sang. “If you don’t like who’s in there, vote ’em out.”

“Election Day is coming ‘round again,” Nelson sang, urging attendees to cast their ballots to vote out this “bunch of clowns you voted in.” The audience enthusiastically sang along with Nelson during the performance.

Nelson has made political statements before, with a Trump-inspired song “Delete and Fast-Forward” released last year.

Nelson faced fierce criticism from many fans for headlining a rally for O’Rourke, who is running to defeat Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), but said earlier this month that he doesn’t care.

Recent polls show a tight race between Cruz and O’Rourke in the red state, which has not elected a Democrat to the Senate in decades.

Watch the performance below.
