Ray recalls his tenure in the “tobacco-brown” honky-tonk universe. Ray sings and strums country rhythm on Martin acoustic, Rise’ Payne doubles herself on fiddles, Tom Gray slides us back into the 1950’s on his electric Hawaiian steel. Paul Carpenter again thumps on acoustic bass and Sherwood Mobley simmers on the honky-tonk drums. Backing vocals by barhoppers Payne & Carpenter. Bottoms up!
“On this song, co-writer Rick Nestler and I easily remembered our days dodging bottles and the whirlwinds of tobacco smoke in some very seedy and unpredictable honky tonks.”
