The problem with Jimmy Buffet's featuring-every-popular-male-country-singer-right-now cover of "Hey Good Lookin'" isn't George Strait, Kenny Chesney, Alan Jackson, Toby Keith, or Clint Black. The problem with it is Jimmy fucking Buffet, who grabs "Hey" from Hank Sr. and attempts to, well, Buffetize it. After hearing it once, you're set.

Speaking of hot country, can anyone tell me how the Gretchen Wilson album is? I think it's pretty much universally acknowledged at this point (or, at least, should be) that "Redneck Woman" is, simple-ly and simply fairly brilliant - i.e., brilliant in its simplicity. But what of Here For the Party? Responses to the usual address, please.

And speaking of Gretchen - and, in this case, and pals - how 'bout her cohorts Big & Rich proving me wrong and going top 20 at country radio with "Save a Horse (Ride A Cowboy)"? Half the country stations in the U.S. seem to have banned it - but it's the #1 record at the other half. Country divided, what?
