Why I Love Country Music, Part 3

These days everybody gives 110%. Aside from being unrealistic and mathematically impossible, its very tiresome. Back in the day, Moon Mullican thought giving 90% was remarkable enough to merit a song.

I couldn't agree more.

Moon Mullican – Nine Tenths Of The Tennessee River (buy album).

For more on Moon, check out Big Rock Candy Mountain.

Good stuff. I knew of Moon Mullican, but didn't realize how influental he was until following up on your links. Seven nights to rock, indeed.
