I AINT NEVER BY WEBB PIERCE

 

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.
