Last year the winner of the country music video award went to Toby Keith. The song was Red Solo Cup. The entire video was devoted to singing the praises of a red plastic cup. However, its a very catchy song, and I sing it in my head every time I see a red cup....Red Solo cup...I lift you up! Lets have a Party!
I just can't seem to stop it.
Country music artists sing about everything, from giving beer to horses and since the phone still ain’t ringing, I guess its still not you. According to punchbowl.com, country music evolved from Appalachian folk music in the 1920s and became a nationwide sensation in the 1940s. The Grand Ole Opry radio station in Nashville, Tennessee began broadcasting weekly concerts that showcased all the different genres of country music—hillbilly, honky-tonk, bluegrass, western, rockabilly, gospel, and more.
There are so many fun songs to choose from for the title of Most Quirky, here are a few:
- ‘Dixie Rose Deluxe’s Honky-Tonk, Feed Store, Gun Shop, Used Car, Beer, Bait, BBQ, Barber Shop, Laundromat’
- ‘Get Your Biscuits in the Oven and Your Buns in the Bed’
- ‘If I Said You Had a Beautiful Body Would You Hold it Against Me’
- ‘Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off’
- ‘Did I Shave My Legs for This?’
The following list was shared last year on the Andrew Carter Talk show on Cjad:
- She Got The Ring And I Got The Finger
- Get Your Tongue Outta My Mouth ‘Cause I’m Kissing You Goodbye
- If I Can’t Be Number One In Your Life,
- Then Number Two On You
- You’re the Reason Our Kids Are So Ugly
- Can’t Get Over You, So Why Don’t You Get Under Me?
- All My Exes Live in Texas
- If Love were Oil, I’d be a Quart Low
- At the Gas Station of Love, I Got the Self-Service Pump
- If You Can’t Live Without Me, Why Aren’t You Dead Yet?
- I Don’t Know Whether To Kill Myself Or Go Bowling

- to Hold All My Lovin’ for You
- It’s Hard to Kiss the Lips at Night
- that Chew Your Ass Out All Day Long

Of course you could spend days looking at all the song titles and watching funny video's. Alan Jackson wrote a song about still loving bologna sandwiches, and made a really cute video too.
