Found it on YouTube

I can’t get this song out of my head. I first heard it (the original AWOLNATION version) at the end of Longmire’s Dog Soldier episode. I didn’t think much of it – thought it was original to the show, and had a nice beat. Then I heard it again on USA’s Common Law season finale. Shazam was my friend that day.

Sail, by AWOLNATION, covered by the Ghost of Patrick Swayze.

The song is somehow magically modern, electronica, folk, country, cowboy, metal, pop, and alternative, all at the same time. Yeah, ‘cowboy’ really isn’t a musical style – the song just exudes it. The original version feels a bit more dubstep’ish than I’m comfortable with, but this acoustic cover is just brilliant.
