Oldiron_79: CastorTroy: log_jammin: He stopped loving her today.

He stopped living here today.

Seriously though, possibly the greatest country song ever written.

Its a good one, but You Never Even Called Me By My Name by David Allan Coe (aka I was drunk the day my momma got out of prison) is probably the most country song EVAR.


You forgot trains and trucks....

What are the odds he no-shows the funeral?

/"He Stopped Loving Her Today" would have been a shiatty headline.

a real country music singer is gone

take notes kids, cause the 'new country' ear barf is a shallow husk of what true country music used to be

/not sure if the possum was a 'good guy' or not, but he sang some damn fine tunes

Okay, the stuff they play on FM Radio and gets exposure on TV?

That isn't country music. That's music played b y frustrated wannabe pop singers who couldn't make it in the big time, so they started singing with a twang and talking about mama and jesus and girl power and appealing to conservatives and mini-van driving soccer moms.

Real country (Well, it's Alt-Country now) is still out there, and fairly easy to find. But you're not going to be force fed it by big music labels, FM Radio, or CMT.

Spike Jones > Spike Joynes (or however the bozo spells it).

Spike Milligan adopted "Spike" from Spike Jones, and is another great.

Get the fark off my lawn.

Do the needful: Hopefully he takes country music with him.


As long as you're keeping an open mind.

It seems only yesterday he was getting pulled over in his lawn mower drunk, in need of more booze. RIP drunk lawn mower rider.

His name was 'drunk lawn mower rider'. Think of him when you see long grass.

There were many threads with that headline.  I do think with George though something about drinking, car crashes, jail, or the like makes the most sense.

David Allan Coe is great. Very underrated songwriter.

Saw him at a show back in '98, and a few idiots showed up to protest him. He bought them drinks and invited them to hang out anyway. But, said he was gonna kick the shiat out of anyone that yelled at him while he was singing. Protest over.

This song was written by DAC. Johnny Paycheck was a buddy of George Jones for years. George even paid for Johnny's funeral.

Correct.  And the mods had about 20 of those identical submissions to choose from..
 
2013-04-26 11:23:45 AM
I won't say my dad "forced" me to listen to a lot of George...but if it was Sunday...and I was home...it was playing. He always told me I would appreciate it one day. I did not believe him, but that day did come. Still not a big ol' school country/bluegrass fan..but I can appreciate.
