And it reminded me of this old post, a prime time TV tip o' the hat to Patsy Montana, on the late lamented "Nashville Star" show. Watch this all the way through to see just how horrified the judges were at hearing yodeling in Nashville.
Phil Vassar (the first judge) was pretty funny about it, but Anastasia Brown was just beside herself. You can't yodel in Nashville.*
The next week's celebrity judge was Larry the Cable Guy, who made the comment that became the post title:
Last week when they was getting on you for yodeling, I was madder than a one-legged waitress working at the IHOP. If you can't yodel in Nashville, Tennessee, we're living in a communist country!Yup. Country Music - love it or leave it! Heh.
All I can say (other than go read Belle's post) is that I'd pay cash money to hear Belle yodel. And double money to hear her yodel a duet with Pistolero ...
* GuardDuck in the comments to my old post wins the Internets with this:
"this is Nashville, you can't sing country songs here."
Gentlemen, There is No Fighting in the War Room!
