Iâ€™m about as far from "Red Neck Crazy" as you can get.Â Iâ€™m a city boy who was raised in the suburbs and went to college in a Downtown area.Â Not a whole lot of country in me.Â
But country music is in me and pretty much all I listen to.Â And I must say that Tyler Farrâ€™s latest single, "Red Neck Crazy," is easily my favorite song of the fall.Â Itâ€™s catchy and, yes, crazy.Â It also features his country music friends Colt Ford and Lee Brice and Willie Robertson of "Duck Dynasty" in the video.Â
I canâ€™t relate to it at all, but I love it.Â And, no, I donâ€™t endorse the fictional actions in the song.Â
How canâ€™t you love these lyrics?
"I'm gonna aim my headlights into your bedroom windows
Throw empty beer cans at both of your shadows
I didn't come here to start a fight, but I'm up for anything tonight
You know you broke the wrong heart baby, and drove me redneck crazy
There are many reasons why I love country music.Â One of them is that country fans are just that, fans of the genre, not just one country artist or one group.Â I like this a lot.Â Itâ€™s about community, more so than this dude or that singer or group.Â Yet many people love to "hate" country music, even as it becomes more and more popular.Â Country music is good, crosses over into most other genres, doesnâ€™t take itself too seriously and always tells a great, if not crazy, story.Â
Enjoy the video below, and check out The Raveâ€™s photos from Farrâ€™s July show in Milwaukee.
Tyler Farr is back in Milwaukee on Nov. 3 when he opens for Florida Georgia Line.Â Colt Ford also is on the bill. Â Farr's debut album comes out Monday, Sept. 30.Â
