"All the bottles are already empty, the cigarettes burned to their core...." Damn I love a good honky tonk song. Smoky bar, a jukebox, people sittin' around drinkin'...What's that you say? Losers? Nope. Not in my opinion. I don't see losers. I see a bunch of people who've been screwed. And that my friend is everybody. Everybody at one time or another has got the shaft. Right? That's why these songs always have universal appeal and never go out of style.
Coming back home late last night, we had the car radio tuned to WSM-AM and heard the most knowledgeable man in Country Music play this song. That would be the great Eddie Stubbs and this is the "Belleville Outfit" with "Will This End in Tears" from their new album, Time to Stand. Phoebe Hunt is the husky voiced lead vocalist.
Great "Tonk" music.ReplyDelete
