if you don’t like this, you’re just plain dumb, but if you don’t know who it is, i reckon i forgive you. This is John Hartford, one of my dad’s favorites and one of the best reasons to watch Hee-Haw, outside of Archie Campbell of course. He wrote funny songs, wry songs, goofy songs and some very beautiful and moving ones as well. He could play anything with string and made darn fine washing machine noises. If you ain’t listened to him much, do us both a favor: Shoot Kenny Chesney in the face on your way to the record store to pick up Steam Powered Aeroplane.
