Road Kill Stew & Other News
Road Kill Stew and Other News is a collaboration between the WAMMIE-award (Washington, DC's Grammies)winning Honky Tonk Confidential and CBS News chief Washington correspondent and Face the Nation anchor Bob Schieffer. Bob wrote the lyrics to four of the songs, including the hilarious 'TV Anchorman,' which he performs as a talking blues tune. HTC also wrote the music to Bob's 'Hard Choices,' a song of loss and longing from a woman's point of view; the rollicking rock tune 'Little Lulu and Sister Hot Stuff,' and 'Long Shot Love,' which is about a love that's lasted many years, despite the odds. The other songs on the CD are HTC's usual eclectic blend of hard core country, western swing, hillbilly boogie, and rockabilly. Diana Quinn sings the title cut, "Road Kill Stew," a delicious, recipe with a swampy taste. Mike Woods sings the obscure Hangover Boogie, as well as the country classic "Statue of a Fool." Mike also tears it up on the instrumental, "Guitar Boogie." Diana and Lisa Ann Wright wrote "A Girl Named Dick," which is a parody of Johnny Cash's "A Boy Named Sue." Bob wraps it up with a cameo performance on a not-so-hidden track, a vintage recording that we unearthed from the vaults of WHTC, "Momma's Cow." ##.
