"Mammas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys" is a country music song first recorded by Ed Bruce, written by him and wife Patsy Bruce. His version of the song appears on his 1976 self-titled album for United Artists Records. In late 1975 and early 1976, Bruce's rendition of the song went to number 15 on the Hot Country Singles charts. This song was featured on Chris LeDoux's album released January 20, 1976, Songbook of the American West, a Volkswagen Passat TDI Clean Diesel commercial, and in the Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas video game soundtrack, on the fictitious radio station K-Rose. Most recently, it is the title song for Netflix’s The Ranch, a show about the ups and downs of a family of ranchers in Colorado.
Members of the Western Writers of America chose the song as one of the Top 100 Western songs of all time.
Waylon Jennings and WIllie Nelson covered the song on their 1978 duet album Waylon & Willie. This rendition peaked at No. 1 in March 1978, spending four weeks atop the country music charts. It also reached 42 on the Billboard Hot 100, and won the 1979 Grammy Award for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal. Also in 1979, Nelson's version was featured in the film The Electric Horseman with Robert Redford and Jane Fonda.
