As the passenger during last week’s two day business trip to Richmond and Newport News, I was exposed to large amounts of C&W music as preferred by my co-worker who was driving. Admittedly my tastes in that area are very out of date. (I prefer Willie, Waylon, Jerry Jeff Walker, Chet Atkins and maybe some Patsy Cline) Knowing I had little appreciation for his preferences, I was given the opportunity to hear two CDs that under normal circumstances I doubt I would ever choose to hear on my own. The first was the ‘Right To Bare Arms’ comedy CD by Larry the Cable Guy(Git-R-Done!) and the second was the collection of (ahem) songs performed by William Hung of American Idol infamy.
I still find it hard to believe but I was actually more offended by William Hung’s lack of talent than by Larry the Cable Guy’s somewhat course humor.
