Gatemouth Brown on NNK

I listened to the Nashville Nobody Knows interview with Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown. As it happened, I was in my car in downtown Conway when they played this great version of Brown doing Hank Williams’ “Jambalaya” with Jo-El Sonnier. I cranked it up and was blasting the cajun-styled music from my car. For some reason, I’ve always enjoyed doing that. When I lived in Lafayette, I loved cruising around in my pickup on Saturday morning listening to “Zydeco Est Pas Sale” on KRVS. It feels kind of cool to be cranking something that isn’t heavy metal or gangster rap. Plus, the fiddles and accordion sound great at volume. I always am hoping for bemused bogglement from the passers-by.
