There’s something about old school country that makes it so much cooler than today’s pop warbling hybrid stuff. Webb Pierce was the man for two decades, recording no less than eight #1 hits in the 1950’s. This video is a look at another era, when country folk standing around shuffling to honky-tonk was entertainment. “I Ain’t Never” is a good one – best played in a flat bed pick up with dog riding shot gun. And check out Pierce’s bright red “Nudie Suit” – perhaps a precursor to Liberace’s outrageous style. “Nudie” is in reference to Nudie Cohn, an American tailor who designed decorative rhinestone-covered suits for some of the most famous celebrities of his era.
