I got the cover off the '68. I fired it up, and let them horses sing.

Chug a lug a luggin' 5 miles an hour On my International Harvester

Up under the seat of my big black jacked up truck Rollin' on 35s

I'm ok with those lyrics.

Zac Brown in reference to the last song above:

“If I hear one more tailgate-in-the-moonlight, daisy dukes song, I’m gonna throw up.”

That's actually pretty funny!

Isn't that the "western" portion of country AND western music?

I don't regularly listen to much C&W stuff, except a bit of older Joe Diffie and Alan Jackson's "Mercury Blues", oh and any of the Hayseed Dixie bluegrass style riffs on rock songs. But I have heard quite a bit of the southern rock and southern pop that passes for the Country side of C&W as my wife goes around the Sirius XM dial. I dont' mind it, but I'm not going to search it out.

But, then again, I like a bit of J-pop and Japanese metal and punk in my collection so what do I know? (Babymetal and Band Maid rock!)
