COUNTRY - Traditional
Honkytonkitis is honky tonk served the way it used to be: tunes about losers and failures and drinkers who come to the bar to lick their wounds and dream of getting back on top again. This is what honky tonk was for musicians like Hank Williams, Ray Price, Faron Young, George Jones and Johnny Cash. Somewhere along the line that image got lost, Country music got "prettified" and the whole concept of music for losers got flushed from the bathrooms of our hearts. Honkytonkitis brings back that honky tonk music your grandpa and daddy listened to when you were a kid; whether it's loving odes to your favorite beer (P-B-R my A-S-S), commiserating over a lost love at the bar (Pour Me), or fighting to take life by the horns while holding a half-empty bottle (Heavy Lifting Calls For Heavy Drinking), Honkytonkitis brings back the glory days of life spent plugging the jukebox while hiding from your old lady in a smoky old joint down the block.
