Last night’s music experience at the Fort was channel 811: Honky Tonk Tavern. It’s hard to believe that both Michele and I actually enjoyed this. It started off with a gospel tune from the great Johnny Cash and ended somewhere with a rocking, twangy tune by Dwight Yoakam.
He was excellent in Slingblade as Dale but did you know that he was also in Terminator 2: Judgement Day and just recently walked off the set of the Lone Ranger, due to a “scheduling conflict”.
I am not s huge Country fan and I have never quite understood what the difference is between Country and Country and Western. Do you know?
But Honk Tonk Tavern is what I guess they would call “old school”. There are a lot of twangy guitars and of course a lot of tunes about your dog, your girlfriend leaving you and being un-employed. Not stereotypical at all.
Maybe tonight we can listen to some honest-to-godness-bang-your-head hard rock. A guy needs a little rockin’ to Dokken before bed.
More to come…
