In one week, the greatest country band of all time will be decided. The past three weeks have seen upsets and blowouts and more than a few come-from-behind wins. Its Taste of Countrys March Bandness, where anything is possible. Fans and ToC readers will determine a champion from two legendary finalists: Alabama and the Charlie Daniels Band.
Never considered CDB a country band. They are Southern Rock which is now what country music has become. One of th biggest producers in Nashville is Chuck Leavell for Allman Brother fame.
Vote every hour for Charlie — he’s recuperating from pacemaker surgery and we all need to support him!
Thanks Fast Moving Angel. Charlie is a true
patriot and needs our support for sure.
Freepers ——— “Stand on it!”
Only authentic country band was Sons of the Pioneers.
Alabama lost me as a fan with "Song of the South", a tribute to the socialist Democrat Franklin Roosevelt and the make-work government program, the TVA:
Daddy was a veteran, a southern Democrat. They oughta get a rich man to vote like that. Well somebody told us Wall Street fell But we were so poor that we couldn't tell. Cotton was short and the weeds were tall But Mr. Roosevelt's a gonna save us all. Well momma got sick and daddy got down. The county got the farm and they moved to town. Pappa got a job with the TVA He bought a washing machine and then a Chevrolet.
Just a little something to back you up ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=boA3VAGIl6A
And their global warming lyrics...
Well there’s a change taking place way on the mountains
Acid rain is falling on the leaves
And down in Brazil, the fires are burning still
How we gonna breathe without them trees
So let’s leave some blue up above us
Let’s leave some green on the ground
It’s only ours to borrow, let’s save some for tomorrow
Leave it and pass it on down
Great song. Wake up call. Thanks for the link.
Thank You. Your vote will be counted once per hour.
The choice is clear.
Alabama is the greatest of all time. 49.01%
No group is better than the Charlie Daniels Band. I love CDB! 50.99%
Lynyrd Skynyrd rocks!!
Yes. Charlie Daniels is southern rock. But hey - I prefer them over Alabama so I will vote. :-)
Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys. Now there was a band.
It don’t mean thing if it ain’t got that. “Texas” swing.
Or Ray Price and the Cherokee Cowboys or Hank Thompson and the Brazos Valley Boys....but if it comes down to just these two....gotta go with CDB....
I’m not all that familiar with the Charlie Daniels Band or Alabama, but after reading the lyrics of “Song of the South,” Alabama disqualifies itself and the CDB wins by default.
