I’ve mentioned in passing, I think, that I am the proud aunt of a nephew and two nieces. My older niece, my rebel without a pause, writer, photographer and comic Amanda, has been a lover of various musical forms from the cradle–although she’s a headbanger at heart, she also loves oldtime country and bluegrass. (Her daddy raised her right. ;))
Until recently, though, my nephew–my Bubba–was, I thought, only a headbanger. There has been, lately, though, somewhat of a minor shift in his likes, thanks to this song.
“Act Naturally” dates back to 1963 and was Buck Owens’s first number one hit. My sister–who’s so stone country she makes Queen Dino look like a headbanger–was listening to satellite radio one morning when the studio version of “Act Naturally” came on. Bubba happened to be home that morning and stopped to listen. He loved this song.
Her Majesty has hopes– 😉
Now if I could just get the Princess into classic country– 😀
