Randy Owen on “Mountain Music”
Randy Owen discusses “Mountain Music.”
- I wanted to bring this song to me,
to Randy Owen, country boy, a farm boy,
whatever you want to call me, poor kid.
And we had a thing around there on Little River
at the Blue Hole,
and if you could swim across that river,
it was like a passage of manhood or whatever,
well that's what I said in the song,
swim across the river just to prove that I'm a man,
spend the day being lazy just being nature's friend.
You would just kind of lay around there in the sun
for a while then you swim for a while
there along the Blue Hole.
And a lot of people were baptized there,
my Daddy was baptized there.
Then the same thing.
Jeff pulls the fiddle out, the crowd goes wild.
