In honor of the event that only happens about 10 times each year, i’ve put together a quick collection of some folky tunes mentioning the glorious natural event known as Rain.
Personally, I love this kind of weather and don’t think there is much better than sitting around with the windows open, enjoying the sound of the rain drops dropping, perhaps sipping on a couple fingers of Scotch with some good tunes playing in the background. Hurray for rain!

It’s been too long since a COUNTRY post and Luke Bryan’s new album came out today, so its the perfect time for a new one. Luke was the star of a previous posting because he likes to sing what I consider AWESOME country songs. Today I’m featuring the first track on his new album, “Doin’ My Thing” which is called Rain Is A Good Thing. Now, according to Luke, the reason that rain is a good thing is because rain makes corn and corn makes whiskey which in turn makes his baby frisky. GENIUS! The second song needs no explanation as it is simply titled Drinkin’ Beer and Wastin’ Bullets. Take a guess about that one…
For today’s cheesy country song we’re going with Brad Paisley’s Ticks. Even the title of this song is hilarious and let’s just say the tagline of the chorus is “i’d like to check you for ticks.” Nothing like a good country tune about loving someone so much that you want to go camping with them and check them for ticks. I have nothing else to say. Now I’m just talking. Lalala. Listen and love. And if anyone has some great suggestions for country songs with hilarious lyrics, please comment and let me know so I can keep a good collection for the future.
Back again today with another cheesy country tune. Today we’re featuring the kick ass lyricist known as Luke Bryan, though i don’t actually know if he writes his own songs. Nonetheless, he chose to sing a song that includes the lyrics “I can grow my own groceries and I can salt cure a ham.”
Clearly Mr. Bryan is more a man than i’ll ever be. All I can do is shop at an organic market. And I don’t even eat ham. Thank god i’m a city boy. But I can still listen to this song and sing it at the top of my lungs as if I am a country man. Wooo! Enjoy.
I enjoy country music, so this is going to be a test to see if I enjoy it enough to actually come up with a new country song to blog about every Tuesday, which is now known as C U Next Tuesday RY. Get it?! I’m hilarious, i know.
This week we’re going to go with one of my favorite styles of country songs, ridiculously hick lyric song. Today this is featuring a fella by the name of Eric Church who sings a fantastically country love song that I heard on the radio the other day and just HAD to get for myself. The guy sings about his love of beer, george strait, his dog, and all sorts of great things. Here are the chorus lyrics:
yes I love good cold beer
and mustard on my fries
I love a good loud honky tonk
it rocks on friday nights
and hell yes I love my truck
but I want you to know
I love your love the most.
Personally, I love this kind of song the most. I really wonder how serious these people are when they write them because they sure sound serious when they sing them. Hopefully I can keep some of these great tunes coming from week to week.
