Hillbilly Hog Roast

Here are the entries for the Hillbilly Hog Roast. We are picking our official Hillbilly Anthem.

White Trash Republican recommends A Man Of Constant Sorrow from the O Brother, Where Art Thou Soundtrack.

E L Frederick, who speaks for the blogs E L Frederick and PA Pundits, recommends A Lapdance Is So Much Better When The Stripper Is Crying by The Bloodhound Gang.

Alabama Improper recommends Sweet Home Alabama by Lynyrd Skynyrd or some selections from Big and Rich, Freak Parade, Coming To Your City or 20 Margaritas.

Hicks, Hounds and Halachah recommends Hicktown by Jason Aldean.

The Cook Shack - Gab & Grub gives us three choices, Dualin Banjo's or The Orange Blossom Special....or Foggy Mountain Breakdown.

Born Again Redneck recommends a song from the South, South Africa that is, Ag Pleez Deddy.

Hillbilly White Trash recommends Hillbilly Shoes by Montgomery Gentry or Copperhead Road by Steve Earle.

Follow the links to the posts for more information about their thought processes.

Songs did not have to be Country Western or Bluegrass, only the kind of song that a hillbilly might listen to or identify with.

It should be noted that more than one person listed Dueling banjos as a possible choice.

Here is how we'll pick the winner. Leave your vote in the comments. Since we have fewer entrants than we have blogs if everyone votes we can narrow it down. Only Hillbilly Ecosystem members can vote. If you want to cast a vote and aren't in the Ecosystem send me an email and I'll add you then you can cast a vote.

Voting will remain open for one week.

In the event of a tie Lemuel Calhoon and the Dowager Viscountess (the two who done the most work puttin the Ecosystem together) will hash it out and decide which entrant wins.

If you submitted an entry and I didn't list it leave a comment and I'll fix it.

Much thanks to everyone who entered a song and to those who vote.


It should be pointed out that Kathy of Hicks, Hounds & Halachah consumed no pork during the production of this blog post, however there is a tub of potato salad and a large bottle of Manashevits missing from the buffet table.
