‘Cultured Country’ with Jim & Lisa and Sir John – This Week: ‘Raised On Country’
Everyone is back from vacation so Lisa was able to squeeze another edition of Cultured Country out of her hubby, Sir John. Our resident BritNeck managed to avoid a pure drinking song this time and instead found a lifestyle/upbringing song from Chris Young titled "Raised On Country".
So, if you missed it, or just want to hear it again, then you know what to do.
Got a little southern drawl in my talk
Little pickup truck on my highway
Got a little boot stomp in my walk
Little neon light in my Friday
Got some Tennessee in my whiskey
Raise a cup up if you with meI was raised on Merle, raised on Willie
Got my Honky Tonk attitude from Joe Diffie
Daddy did too, it's family tradition
If someone cranks it up, you can't help but listen
My upbringing sounds like George Strait singing
And I gotta give props to the radio
'Cause if you know me, I was raised on country
"Cultured Country," listen for it Thursday mornings at 7:45 with Jim & Lisa, "The Wakeup Crew," on Kicker 102.5.
Here's the way Chris 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.
