Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July, I am sure most of our American readers are out celebrating right now. Nothing like blowing shit up and drinking to celebrate your freedom! I have been wanting to post some of the music that I grew up on and love to listen to and since today is about celebrating American Independance I thought it was appropriate to post some good ole redneck country for your listening enjoyment.

There are so many amazing classic country songs, when good music was just that good music. I think Trace Adkins says it best “Songs about me”. I’ll leave you with one more newer song but for anyone thats been looking for a job recently I hope you can relate.

  2. Kristofferson took a break from moviemaking to concentrate on his musical career and his sixth album, Who’s to Bless and Who’s to Blame , released in November 1975. But the extra effort did not translate into increased sales. The LP reached the country Top 40, but it missed the Top 100 of the pop charts. Johnny Duncan ‘s recording of the Kristofferson song “Stranger” from the album became a country hit, however, reaching the Top Five. Kristofferson returned to the movies and in the spring of 1976 was seen in Vigilante Force and The Sailor Who Fell From Grace With the Sea, also contributing a song to the latter. His seventh album, Surreal Thing , followed his sixth by only eight months. It was another commercial disappointment, reaching the country Top Ten while barely registering in the pop charts. But in December 1976, he enjoyed both a hit movie and a hit record with the release of A Star Is Born, in which he co-starred with Barbra Streisand . Critics howled, but the film was a box office smash, second only to Rocky among motion pictures released in 1976 as the top-grossing hit, while the soundtrack album, which featured several contributions from Kristofferson (among them the pop chart entry “Watch Closely Now”), topped the pop charts and sold several million copies. Of course, Streisand had more to do with all that than Kristofferson did, but he was awarded a Golden Globe for Best Actor.
