‘Cultured Country’ with Jim & Lisa – This Week: ‘Honey Bee’
Throwback Thursday doesn't always mean we're gonna throw it way back, right? If you had told me that Blake Shelton's hit "Honey Bee" was 10 years old I might have called you a liar, right to your face. But wow, it sure is... it's also this week's song that our registered Brittneck, Sir John, brought forth from the archives for a little fun, it's this week's featured lyric on Cultured Country.
Just hit the play button below and away we go...
Girl, I been thinkin' 'bout us
And you know I ain't good at this stuff
But these feelings pilin' up won't give me no rest
This might come out a little crazy
A little sideways, yeah maybe
I don't know how long it'll take me
But I'll do my bestYou'll be my soft and sweet
I'll be your strong and steady
You'll be my glass of wine
I'll be your shot of whiskey
You'll be my sunny day
I'll be your shade tree
You'll be my honeysuckle
I'll be your honey bee
"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 Blake sings 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.
