Twangin’ and Slangin’

This week on the Sweet and Sour, wade cautiously into the waters of the country music genre. We take it nice and easy, like a suspicious mare going headlong into an unknown river.

She’s got a heavy rider and the scent of gators in her nose. Aint no tellin’ if she’ll make it across alive.

If this here is unfamiliar territory, just trust the boot. This son of a gun’s got the reins and you’ll be glad you came along.
