This week on Cultured Country... Sir John continued with the "no drinking song" theme but took us on a slightly different path this time, more philosophical. Once again our resident BritNeck did a fine job of translation on Kenny Chesney's latest hit, Here and Now". By the way, there is a little mention of drinking in it, but only enough to "knock the horns off a Cadillac"... not much at all.

So, if you missed it, or just want to hear it again, then you know what to do.

Just so you can follow along, below is the lyric;
Seen the skyline in New York City
Fireflies in Tennessee
Sipped a little shine from a paper sack that'll
Knock the horns off a Cadillac
I must've sat on a dozen islands
Watched the sun sink into the sea
Been there, done that, got the t-shirt and hat
But my favorite place to be is
Here and now
Nowhere else in this world enough
You and me, ain't it good to be alive?
Ain't no better place, ain't no better time than
Here and now
Everybody's waiting, but they're waiting on what?
Better get to living, 'cause all we've got is
Here and now

"Cultured Country," listen for it Thursday mornings at 7:45 with Jim & Lisa, "The Wakeup Crew," on Kicker 102.5.

Here's the way it sounds when Kenny 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.
