“The Worst Country Song of All Time,” by newcomer Brantley Gilbert, is fun and wacky and  reminiscent of the fun and wacky  “You’re The Reason Our Kids Are Ugly,” a hit in 1978 for Loretta Lynn and Conway Twitty.

It’s fast talking and tongue in cheek and pokes fun at  a slew of Country music cliches: beer, hunting, honky tonks, prison, trucks, Johnny Cash, dirt roads and sweet tea!

“We took a big group of songwriters to Texas to do a writing retreat and …in one of the sessions, HARDY said, “Man, I’ve had this idea for “The Worst Country Song of All Time”..it was a big joke…and before we knew it, we were writing it.”

Toby Keith, an old hand at poking fun of most everyone and everything,  joins Brantley and HARDY in this uptempo novelty record, which is just now entering the Country chart,  at #44.
