#1 country song of all-time(Gen . x ) . U s e d 2 think of country as his daddy's music ...but there were never truer words. I've lived it.

So...this person below me...questio n ..."What's ur feelings on Uncle Ted/& Willie"
'Cause I kinda back survivors over people who .
.let's just say ..."C A N ' T. N E V E R. C O U L D ......JUST SAYIN'

Well the real question is, Can we SURVIVE another Bush (Jeb) administrati o n ?

Williams is one helluvan artist. Almost in the same league as his Papa was and that's sayin something. And occasionally he makes valuable political statements such as this song does.

But much of the time he's full of $hit. As when he compares Obama to Hitler.
