Today for SLS, Jim Adams, (A Unique Title For Me), has asked for songs from bands/groups that mention other singers/bands in their song. There are quite a lot of them, which surprised me.

Thanks for the prompt, Jim! 🙂

To join in this fun weekly challenge, just click the above link for instructions. You can also see what others have posted, too.

“Redneck Woman”, by Gretchen Wilson, was released as a single from her album, “Here For the Party”, in 2004. It was written by John Rich and Gretchen Wilson, and is on the Epic label.

From Wiki:

The music video includes the following guest stars: Big and Rich, Tanya Tucker, Hank Williams, Jr. and Kid Rock, all of whom are name-dropped in the song. The music video was ranked #11 on CMT’s 100 Greatest Videos in 2008.

[Verse 1]
Well, I ain’t never been the Barbie Doll type
No, I can’t swig that sweet Champagne
I’d rather drink beer all night
In a tavern
Or in a honky-tonk
Or on a four-wheel-drive tailgate

Oh, I’ve got posters on my wall
Of Skynyrd, Kid and Strait
Some people look down on me
But I don’t give a rip
I’ll stand barefooted in my own front yard
With a baby on my hip

[Chorus 1]
Cause I’m a redneck woman
I ain’t no high class broad
I’m just a product of my raisin’
I say “hey, y’all” and “yee-haw”

And I keep my Christmas lights on
On my front porch all year long

And I know all the words to every Charlie Daniels song
So here’s to all my sisters
Out there keeping it country
Let me get a big “hell yeah” from the redneck girls like me
Hell yeah
(Hell yeah!)

Victoria’s Secret
Well, their stuff’s real nice
Oh, but I can buy the same damn thing
On a Walmart shelf half-price
And still look sexy (sexy)
Just as sexy as those models on TV

No, I don’t need no designer tag
To make my man want me
You may think I’m trashy
A little too hard core
But in my neck of the woods
I’m just the girl next door

[Chorus 2]
Hey, I’m a redneck woman
I ain’t no high class broad
I’m just a product of my raising
I say “hey, y’all” and “yee-haw”

And I keep my Christmas lights on
On my front porch all year long

And I know all the words to every Tanya Tucker song
So here’s to all my sisters
Out there keeping it country
Let me get a big “hell yeah” from the redneck girls like me
Hell yeah
(Hell yeah!)

I’m a redneck woman
I ain’t no high class broad
I’m just a product of my raising
I say “hey, y’all” and “yee-haw”

And I keep my Christmas lights on
On my front porch all year long

And I know all the words to every Ol’ Bocephus song
So here’s to all my sisters
Out there keeping it country
Let me get a big “hell yeah” from the redneck girls
Like me

[Outro]
(Hell yeah!)
Hell yeah!
(Hell yeah!)
Hell yeah!
(Hell yeah!)
I said hell yeah!

This next song is by Jana Stanfield. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting her on several occasions, and is a wonderful and friendly person. She performs all over the world, and is a Keynote Speaker.

Bonus Song:

“U B U , I M E”, by Jana Stanfield, is on her 1994 album, “The Trick is to Learn to Enjoy the Ride”

In this song, she is writing a letter to James Taylor.

 

So many people I would rather be, people smarter, more talented than me
James Taylor, for example, next to him I couldn’t hold a candle
Found James’ address in a book, opened up my heart and with a hand that shook
I wrote “Dear James, I want to be like you, please write me back and tell me what to do”
Well i checked the mailbox every day, waited for a letter but it never came
He sends letters his own way. Checked my answering machine and it was sweet baby James

CHORUS:
B.S.U.R., S.U.C., S.I.M., I.M.
U.B.U., I.M.E
U.B.U., I.M.E
WE’RE EXACTLY WHO WE’RE SUPPOSED TO BE
U.B.U., I.M.E
U.B.U., I.M.E

I started thinking as I wrote this song, how cool it’d be if James could sing along
What a brainstorm it would be so fun, a duet with James Taylor on my new album
What if he invited me to join his tour and be his opening act around the world
My head would swell to over twice its size if he would feature me on Saturday night live

Then I’d be a megastar, I’d shop at Walmart in a chauffered car
I could get lost in this fantasy, but James’ voice brings me back to reality

Chorus:
B.S.U.R., S.U.C., S.I.M., I.M.
U.B.U., I.M.E
U.B.U., I.M.E
WE’RE EXACTLY WHO WE’RE SUPPOSED TO BE
U.B.U., I.M.E
U.B.U., I.M.E

Just in case this song is a success
I’d better get my answers all prepared
When a thousand young girls are calling me for advice
This is the message they’ll hear
