What Would You Say
Mike Sudhalter | February 23, 2009
Just the name causes fans, critics and just about anyone else to laugh and wonder....are these folks for real?
Songs like "Rockin' The Beer Gut" and "In My Next Five Beers" didn't help their cause of being taken as anything more than a novelty act, either.
But this trio from Toby Keith's Show Dog label took a sharp turn to serious-ville with their new single, "What Would You Say?"
It starts with reminding us of the West Virginia coal mining tragedy, and then posing the heart-wrenching question, what would you do if you only had a few minutes left to live. What would you say to your loved ones?
We often hear about having a year to live or even a few months, i.e., the film "The Bucket List" but a few minutes....that's not a scenario we're often presented with or even wish to contemplate.
Credit this trio with tackling a tough subject with a new melody....let's hope they can continue to mix up the silly and serious tunes for a bright future.
