Warning: This music is not for the faint of heart.
You’ve been warned…
There is a new form of country music. Colt Ford started his Average Joe’s Entertainment (with business partners I believe) a few years ago. He had a crazy dream to disrupt the country music industry and so far he’s been having great success.
This music video here from the Redneck Social Club brings together country music and rap. It’s party rap with a little redneck and country influence. I bet you never thought you’d hear something like this.
Naked Wasted – Redneck Social Club
This song and this brand of country music is going to appeal to a very specific sect of the country audience. I don’t think the mainstream country audience is ready for something this far over the line just yet.
It will take a few more Dirt Road Anthems and a couple other tracks from the Average Joe’s acts before something this far in the rap genre makes its way on the country radio.
I don’t think that’s Colt’s goal, though. He’s looking to find artists that are truly unique. I think he’s found that with Redneck Social Club. They are in your face country rap and they are ready to part. This song is about having a good time and just letting loose. I’ve met a few country folks that love this lifestyle and those are the folks I see listening to this song.
It’s for those folks on a Friday and Saturday (maybe a Tuesday). They are off work. They are calling up their friends and ready to party. It’s not about doing the right thing. It’s about having fun.
Colt Ford and his core of friends including the Redneck Social Club are disrupting things in country music.
Haters are gonna hate, but these guys are finding an audience of listeners. That’s something I respect.
