‘Cultured Country’ with Jim & Lisa and Sir John – This Week: ‘Good Directions’
Cultured Country is back this week with a good one, remember Billy Currington's hit "Good Directions" from the Doing Something Right CD released in 2006? Great song, good story and of course, well performed by Currington. Now you need to here some of it performed by our resident Britneck. It sounds a little different. But as always, Sir John did a super job bringing the culture this week to our little radio program.
So, if you missed it, or just want to hear it again, push the buttons below.
I was sittin' there sellin' turnips on a flatbed truck
Crunchin' on a pork rind when she pulled up
She had to be thinkin' this is where rednecks come from
She had Hollywood written on her license plate
She was lost and lookin' for the interstate
Needin' directions, and I was the man for the jobI told her way up yonder past the caution light
There's a little country store with an old Coke sign
You gotta stop in and ask Miss Bell for some of her sweet tea
Then a left will take you to the interstate
But a right will bring you right back here to me
Here's the way it sounds when Bi does it...
How It Works:
The premise is simple, country music lovers like us are generally thought of as un-cultured, so to fight this ridiculous notion and bring what we consider a little more refinement to our show, we thought having someone from jolly old England read some country music lyrics, out loud, on the radio might raise the culture bar a notch or two. Since we don't have any access to the Royals and the only Brit we know in the immediate area just happens to be Lisa's husband John, that's the way we went.
