Hello All! I like the idea of having a Mid-Month Top 10...gives folks something to look forward to after they've had their dose of Clear Channel's version of "what everything music should be", to steal/paraphrase a line from David Allan Coe. So here goes.....
The Mid-Month Top 10
1- Crazy - Dry County Drifters
2- If That Ain't Country (live 1983) - David Allan Coe
3- The Cowboy Hat Song - Scott Casteel
4- Farmer's Luck - Jason Boland & The Stragglers
5- The Man Behind The Drums - Robert Earl Keen
6- The Call Me Cadillac - Randy Houser
7- Wake Me Up - The Big Ol' Nasty Getdown
8- Dead Flowers - Steve Earle & The Dukes
9- Red Dirt - Renegade Rail
10- Carved In Stone - Preacher Stone
Skydog's Comments & Observations:
- Pretty interesting mix of songs, don't you think? From David Allan Coe (the Original Outlaw) through The Big Ol' Nasty Getdown(with roots in the P-Funk genre) to Jason Boland & The Stragglers...REAL MUSIC knows no bounds.
- Skydog's Red Dirt Radio welcomes The Big Ol' Nasty Getdown to the Outlaws, Rebels & Renegades Family! Can't say exactly who this is singin', but put it this way: David Allan Coe ain't the only "Mysterious Rhinestone Cowboy"! When I first got an e-mail from his management about a song that might fit our format....well, let's say Ol' Skydog was a bit skeptical! Red Dirt, Southern Rock, Outlaw Country....and P-Funk?? But, Hell ...why not...so when the tune came in...well, The Funk has gone Country....and in a GOOD way. Sorta Soul Country. Since it runs over 8 minutes, I sent it to the "Outlaws" show (midnight to 6 am). The "Real Outlaw" listeners love it! Stay tuned, I understand he's working on a shorter version. Who knows...the P-Funk might take over Nashville!!!
- The DAC song is from 1983, a live show taped and shared from the Netherlands. A young Warren Haynes, later to hit fame with The Allman Brothers Band and Govt Mule, is ripping out the lead guitar. A search of the web will get you several download sites to get the whole show (well worth your time!).
