Sing it Again
Have you ever wound up being a part of something that you really didn't know how the hell you wound up being a part of? Well, I have managed to do just that.
How many of you have heard of an old show called Hee Haw? If you haven't.....well..... I guess you didn't grow up where I grew up. Anyway. Hee Haw was sort of a country variety show. They had jokes and skits and lots of musical guests.
Well. My town is putting on their own Hee Haw show. And guess who ended up in it? Yours truly. I will playing the part of June Carter Cash and singing Jackson with my pretend Johnny. I'll be in some other skits, too, and helping out with costumes and such. I bet you didn't know that I sing, did you? Yeah, well, I can carry a tune every once in a while. ;)
Some other things that you didn't know? I'm deeply steeped in southern culture. I can clog. Used to be on a team when I was younger. I also used to play in a bluegrass band when I was little. I played the mandolin and sang. I can't remember how to play a lick, but I'll still stand up in front of a crowd and make a fool of myself. I know every word to Rocky Top and if I had a dollar for every time I've had to sing it, I would buy myself something nice.
Let's just hope I can do June justice. This is gonna be fun. Or at least funny.
Now, go Google Jackson, Rocky Top, mandolin, and clogging. I know you want to.
