Prophets and Outlaws is no stranger to the sports realm having had their songs played regularly at the Dallas Stars and Texas Rangers homes games. But it was an unusual night and an unusual honor to be at Gilley’s Dallas on Saturday night performing their version of the classic “Our Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys.” They performed the song 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.
Prophets and Outlaws lead singer, Matt Boggs, said “People can’t imagine how literally perfectly the song ‘My Heroes 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.”
A video of the performance is available on their Twitter page here.
