      Glad to hear you found it entertaining. I thought the music was pretty bad.

    In the box labeled “sounds like” you will agree that the singer does sound like Hank Williams Jr., 38 Special…maybe, Johnny Cash…it's possible…but here's the kicker….Def Lepard??????? Maybe they sport some really great retro mullets!!!!

    You can also sample some more of their music on the site like “My Dixie”, “Never Surrender” and “Southern Belle”. Quality stuff here!
