    Lukas Nelson and Shooter Jennings have followed in their fathers’ footsteps and recorded their own take of the Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings song “Mammas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys.”

    Lukas and Shooter updated the 1978 tune for Netflix, which uses the new track as the theme for its new series The Ranch. A full-length version of their rendition has been released, along with the rest of the series’ soundtrack. The show kicked off its final season last week.

    “Lukas and I had a great time in the studio. We came up with an alternate rhythm that changes the vibe a little bit from the original—that gave us the space to make it our own,” Jennings said in a statement. “He and I have had very close relationships with our fathers—they always were our Number One fans. I’m so happy to have had the opportunity to sing this song with my brother and just have fun with it.”
