My Music

Don't get me wrong...

I personally love country music because they tell stories in a way that I relate to (and it probably helps that I have been listening to it all my life since my mom and her family are from Alabama.) Growing up it was a kind of shameful secret amongst this kids at school that I actually enjoyed listening to country music, and I think that mind set is perpetrated by the reputation of the south as well as by lists such as the one I am about to post. I am the first to admit that not all country is good (actually all of anything is rarely if ever good) but I thought I would be a good sport and post this since it actually did make me chuckle.

Cherry Bombs
"Notorious Cherry Bombs" 2004

Vince Gill, Rodney Crowell, and a bunch of guys who have been in country music forever got together to make an album.

The video was hilarious. When one guy would sing the other would be in drag playing his wife.

Honest, you can find it on Amazon or I found the lyrics here.

#4 is real too. It's been around a lot longer than 2005 though. I heard it covered by a Chicago band at Blackwater about seven years ago. It was old then? I think.
