This album encapsulates, exposes, and puts in perfect perspective EVERYTHING I ever hated about what happened to country music when I graduated high school. The best schlock spoof country album ever made.

I really wanted to like this one but all the tempos are off. B5 "On The Road Again" bpm is SO SLOW!! Original Willie song is 112 bpm this one is 88 bpm. wowowowe
