New music is always a good thing when it comes to Stoney LaRue and Wade Bowen. We’ve watched these guys for years and the are only getting better, deeper and stronger when it comes to their craft.

This week on the Show, F. Scott Fitzgerald dropped in with his 5-Beer Breakdown on the latest singles from these two on our weekly Battle Segment.

Give it a listen and see which way you would have voted!

Two great songs go in, one comes out. The ultimate Texas Country Throwdown.

A Letter to Fanboys and Fangirls of Pop-Country

You had us at Waylon…

To the Fanboys and Fangirls of mainstream pop-country,

What you all call “country music” is nothing more than a mislabeled pop/hip hop/rock hybrid of music, or also called a mono-genre. To start, I’m going to give everyone the dictionary definition of “country music”:

“A style and genre of largely string-accompanied American popular music having roots in the folk music of the Southeast and cowboy music of the West, usually vocalized, generally simple in form and harmony, and typified by romantic or melancholy ballads accompanied by acoustic or electric guitar, banjo, violin, and harmonica.”

Alan Jackson Public Domain

You’ll notice nowhere in that description does it mention computer generated beats and grooves. You know, the sound of the “music” in Jason Aldean’s “Burnin’ It Down” or pretty much everything on Sam Hunt’s debut album. And don’t give me any of the BS about how “country music must evolve.” No…

The Intoxicating Sounds Of NASCAR

I’ve got NASCAR practice on Fox Sports 1 behind me right now as I write this. I’m listening, but more than that I’m feeling.

There is an amazing sound to NASCAR that even comes through on your TV or Radio if you’ll let it. The rhythm of the motors as they sing around the track. Well, unless it is one of TRG’s old engines and then it sounds like a junior high orchestra tuning-up. Even that has a particular lilt to it.

One of the things I love about NASCAR are the sounds and sights. They give you a total sensory experience. From the decals on the cars to the hum of the generators in the campground, it all adds up and contributes to an experience unlike any other in sports.

You never know what you'll see at the track.

You never know what you’ll see at the track.

When I can’t make it to the track, TV reminds me a little of what it’s like to be there for several days camping with friends, cooking, eating, eating, cooking and drinking. OK. Maybe drinking made it a little late on the list. As much as any of the particulars from the races I’ve attended over the years I remember the sights and sounds as much as anything.

For my friends who aren’t into NASCAR ( yes, they exists ) I tell them you can’t truly appreciate everything there is to enjoy about the sport unless you actually go to a race. I liken it to hockey. My hockey friends used to tell me the same thing in the early 90’s. They were right.

I didn’t get hockey, I didn’t play it growing up and until I was an adult had never seen a game in person. When I did it changed everything.

Hockey doesn’t translate to TV. At all. NASCAR faces a bit of the same problem I think. There is so much going on over such a spread out area all transpiring at crazy speed and at a volume your TV doesn’t have it’s impossible to any network to deliver it in its full glory.

That’s why I say you’ve got to be there at least once to understand what you’re missing when you’re not there!

So, as I sit here on a Saturday waiting for things to dry out on the farm I’ve got the sounds of NASCAR going on behind me. In my mind I’m at a campground at Texas Motor Speedway. I hope somebody iced down the beer. . .

The Fine Art of Doing Nothing: How To Smoke A Brisket Point

The Fine Art of Doing Nothing: How To Smoke A Brisket Point

Ryan Hyatt Media:

No Texas Tech game this weekend, but still compelling NASCAR and what the hell, it’s Saturday. Here’s something to stoke your food imagination and inspire you.

The Day Off

There comes a time in a man’s day-to-day, when all the world seems to conspire around him. Where one social posture leads into the next, and for a while at least, brisk5he cannot seem to get his feet on solid ground. Nary can he find a hidden moment even, to catch his breath, and enjoy his inalienable right to watch the clouds slowly idle by. Such was the case here recently, as it sometimes is when one lives a busy life. Drawn henceforth from duty to duty, event to event, it’s easy for a pit jockey to get restless for his craft when he cannot do it. When the ever-whirling cog of society sweeps you under the rug of life, and you are mired there, like a dull, gray moth trembling in a spider’s web.

This weekend last, as the tweety birds cavorted in the morning dew, and the…
