What I’m Listening To: 10/17/2019; Family Tradition



“Country music singers are a real close family…”

Bocephus talks about this confederation of country singers with great gusto. And he talks about his own identity and what sets himself apart from his father and the rest of those who are practitioners of the “Family Tradition”

Song: “Family Tradition”

Album: Family Tradition (1979)

Composer: Hank Williams Jr.

“Hank why do you drink, why do you roll smoke”

My favorite stanza of the song.

“Lord I have loved some ladies
And I have loved Jim Beam
And they both tried to kill me in 1973.”


I’m glad it wasn’t Jack Daniel’s. I like that one too much.
