‘Cultured Country’ with Jim & Lisa – This Week: ‘Toes’
Cultured Country this week involves the sun, the sand and probably a drink in your hand, a dynamite little ditty called "Toes" from the Zac Brown Band. Personally, one of my favorites from ZBB. There is a word in the song that normally gets edited for airplay and Sir John had to do a little editing of his own, don't worry, you will pick it right up. Sir John did a super job bringing us "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.
Four days flew by like a drunk Friday night
As the summer drew to an end
They can't believe that I just couldn't leave
And I bid adieu to my friends
'Cause my bartender she's from the islands
Her body's been kissed by the sun
And coconut replaces the smell of the bar
And I don't know if it's her or the RumI got my toes in the water, ass in the sand
Not a worry in the world, a cold beer in my hand
Life is good today, life is good today
"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 Zac Brown does it... (Language warning, this is the uncut version.)
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.
