Actor Patrick Stewart Goes Country for a Good Cause

British actor Sir Patrick Stewart traded in his suit and tie for a cowboy hat for a hilarious new infomercial, and it’s all for a good cause.

You probably recognize Stewart from his famous roles in Star Trek: The Next Generation or the recent X-Men film trilogy. What you may not know is that this award-winning movie star secretly has a love of all things country, including some of the genre’s most classic songs. In fact, he loves country music so much that he decided to record an entire album entitled Patrick Stewart’s Cowboy Classics.

Don’t believe me? Watch the commercial below and prepare to have your mind blown.

Yes, Patrick Stewart’s Cowboy Classics is actually a real thing that you can download as a five-song sampler for the bargain price of $10. The collection features full performances of “Buttons and Bows,” “Don’t Fence Me In,” “Ringo,” “I’m an Old Cowhand” (featuring Stewart’s wife, Sunny Ozell) and “Here Comes Santa Claus,” just in case you’re missing the holidays.

The best part is that all proceeds raised from Stewart’s musical venture will benefit the International Rescue Committee, a global humanitarian aid organization that helps those affected by conflict across the globe.

So, what are you waiting for? Slip on your boots, clean off your saddle and get ready to enjoy one of the most unique country music releases so far this year.
