the FM version of “Uneasy Rider” is one of his best efforts
I enjoy both genres very much.
I don't care if you lick windows,
take the special bus
or occasionally pee on yourself...
You hang in there sunshine,
The Maverics are the only name I recognized. I think of them is married to a Dixie Chick, but I could be wrong.
They think the blue state democrats are going to buy their country music albums....ROTFL!
And we all know how folk music is a bastion of the Right!! /sarcasm! ;>)
**And the Grand Ole Opry just invited Charlie Daniels to join them. Quite an honor. And Charlie would have no trouble telling the dems exactly what he thinks of them and their anti-American attitudes.***
I remember when Skeeter Davis came out against the VN war years ago while on the Grand Ole Opry. She even released a song from the Bily Jack movie.
If you know anyone who has been through AA you know what I mean, at least the first few years of it.
I have lived in Nashville and worked in the music business for 21 years and I only know of about 5 if them.
I found this about the same time you did I think. See post 110.
We are good....hectic but OK. Just about ready for Thanksgiving.
I'm not so much singing the praise of the Grand Ole Opry, but Charlie Daniels. And him getting there is like being inducted into the Hall of Fame for a country musician.
And that being said; and in light of your post; I seriously doubt that they don't know where Charlie's feelings and loyalties lie. [ie., 100% percent American and proud of it!) It's not like he's kept it a secret.
So hooray for CD.
You forgot trains and Mama
More songs about cheatin’ and drinkin’, less about God and country, I guess.
I was unaware that she opposed the VN war, but I'm not surprised. I like her song "The End of hte World" (1962), which is thought by some to have been inspired by the Cuban Missile Crisis.
That's a good question, although songs featuring a spoken narration are hardly new. Other songs in this tradition include "Talking Union" by the Almanac Singers (1941), "No, No, Joe" by luke the Drifter (1950), "Hot Rod Race" by Arky Shibley, Ramblin' Jimmy Dolan, Tiny Hill, and others (1951), and "Let's Think About Living" by Bob Luman (1960).
With words like, “large” and “Switch”, the parodies will nearly write themselves.
Were in a war and Southerners have a tendency to be patriotic. But a lot of them are beginning to see that patriotism does not mean supporting a bad war.
It’s a great time for these Democrat singers to come out, now that the war is coming at an end in our favor! Just what country fans need, their own singers trying to shove their politics down their throat instead of shutting up and singing! By all means Democrat singers, sell country fans on Hillary (she’s so popular in countryland, I’m sure!!!). For my part, I was a fan of Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, and for some reason have lost my taste for hearing both of them. It must be coincidence.
Lets see, George Strait, Alan Jackson, Collin Raye, Tracy Byrd, Daryl Worley, Sammy Kershaw, Martina McBride, Sarah Evans, Steve Wariner, Trace Adkins. Yup sound like a group of loyal america hating democrats to me.
