Back in December, we first found out that Brett Myers is a terrible musician. But the album that post was all about, Backwoods Rebel, is now streaming for free on Spotify. Oh boy is it something.
We’re not going to review the whole thing like some others did, because I’m not sure I have that in me. But here are some standout lyrics:
- “I saw my neighbor jogging, and I wanted to see more. I took another look. I had to take that chance. It’s the best damn thing that I have seen and it’s those damn yoga pants.” – “Yoga Pants”
- “It’s the thrill of the hunt, but we won’t need a gun. ‘Cause right around here, the season’s open all year. Going out early. Staying out late. It’s a backwoods party and the bar is my tailgate. Right around here, season’s open all year. Every weekend raisin’ hell, out here chasin’ tail.” – “Chasing Tail”
And none of that includes the lead single “Kegerator,” which is about buying a Kegerator so you nagging wife can’t tell you you’re drinking too much. Myers hates nagging wives.
Spotify’s “related artists” algorithm is the real star here though, since it’s just a who’s who of artists whose names sound sports related, like:
- The Miami Dolphins
- The World Series
- Vince Young (not that Vince Young)
- Michael Vick (not that Michael Vick)
- Sir Charles
- and Ron Mexico
What a time to be alive. A Spotify embed of the album is after the jump, if that’s a road you really want to go down.
