As an X-Files fan this is a great story about a mysterious Country Music song. I guess it could also be filk. This is the best part of the internet.
We will definitely look back 1000 years from now and say history started with the internet.
"The fiercest song on Parton’s new album, 'World on Fire,' is perhaps less compelling for its social commentary—'Greedy politicians present and past / They wouldn’t know the truth if it bit ’em in the ass,' she sings, without naming names—than for how it defies the patronizing image of Parton as America’s Sweetheart."

Here's a great example from Callin' Baton Rouge by Garth Brooks (1993)
And I see a truck stop sign ahead, so I change lanes
I need a cup of coffee and a couple dollars change
Callin' Baton Rouge
Here we go!
Operator, won't you put me on through?
I gotta send my love down to Baton Rouge

I Got a Beer in My Hand

And we keep smoking, and we keep drinking
Having fun, never thinking
And laughing at the price tag that we pay
And we keep rolling down the fast lane
Like two young men feeling no pain
And the reason for quittin' is gettin' bigger each day.
And the reason for quittin' is gettin' bigger each day.

If I want to honky tonk around 'til two or three
Now, brother that's my headache, don't you worry 'bout me.
Just mind your own business
Mind your own business
If you mind your business, then you won't be mindin' mine
Mindin' other people's business seems to be high-toned
I got all that I can do just to mind my own.
Why don't mind your own business
Mind your own business.
If you mind your own business you'll stay busy all the time.
Fenton Jones was a famous #SquareDance caller 🤠
I don’t suppose anybody documented his accordionist?
Cause he’s not in the miraculous PragueFrank’s Country Music Discographies:
If you see a country musician playing a lap steel guitar, the odds are that it's a Mullen. And that it's made so far out on the high plans of Colorado that the closest town (pop. 53) is more than 10 mi/16 km away.
John Hartford - “Boogie” (1971)
This is the first song I ever heard from this bluegrass/folk legend.
Hartford was an American composer and musician known for his mastery of the fiddle and banjo, as well as for his witty lyrics and, as you can hear on this one right from the start, a “unique vocal style”.
But @mykie Frankenstein’s
“Crawling in My Heart” would fit both formats 🫀
#JasonIsbell on "Rich Men North of Richmond" by #OliverAnthony: "There’s something there. But that’s the song you should have written when you were 16, and then, when you were 19, you should have rewritten it without the part about hating people on welfare. And then when you are 20 you throw the whole thing out and write another song."
I always enjoy visiting Nashville, the "County Music Capital of the World". 🙂 Some just call it Music City, but either way. I took this shot of the skyline at sunset...

I got too far from my raisin' and forgot where I come from,
and the line between right and wrong is so fine.
I thought the highway loved me but she beat me like a drum,
my day will come if it takes a lifetime!
Singer-songwriter Maren Morris says she's leaving country music because of the Trump era: "It just revealed who people really were and that they were proud to be misogynistic and racist and homophobic and transphobic. All these things were being celebrated, and it was weirdly dovetailing with this hyper-masculine branch of country music. I call it butt rock," she told the LA Times in an interview about new EP "The Bridge."

It's you and me and the basic channels,
Yard full of weeds and some beat up flannels,
Little house, out of town,
Hunker down through the highs and lows,
When the sky comes down,
Baby I'm gonna hold you close,
