>I’m sure any of you who have seen it are needing something to cleanse yourselves of theunbridled awfulnessto which you were subjected a few minutes ago. And if you’re still working your way down to that post, trust me, you’re gonna in a minute. In fact, click the link above and then finish reading this. Really, it’s the only way you’ll make it through.
While I was off visiting family last week, my mom happened to mention that Darius Rucker (the Hootie and the Blowfish guy) had made a country album. That’s really no surprise since Hootie was almost a country band to start with, and a pretty damn good one I might add. So since I hadn’t heard his first single yet, one of my missions when I had some time was to hunt it down and listen to it. Well, I just did, and it’s fine stuff. It sounds like Hootie and the Blowfish would sound if they recorded something and said “hey world, this is a country song.” It honestly wouldn’t be out of place on any of the band’s albums, which makes me wonder if some of their older stuff might be re-released to country radio at some point. It probably won’t, but much stranger things have happened in music before. Shit, the Monster Mash was a number 1 song at least twice for crying out loud, so an attempt at giving some stuff that’s actually good a second life would be worth a try.
