Playlist Notes:Imus Country Bumper are pieces which provide theme music segments inserted for breaks between intros and outros. The musicians are typically I-Favs, many of whom have performed on .
This collection includes long time Imus friends such as Delbert McClinton’s “Giving It Up For Your Love”, “Sending Me Angels” and Delbert playing Harmonica for Bruce Channel’s “Hey Baby”. Kinky Friedman is also here with “They Ain’t Making Jews Like Jesus Anymore” and his ever present A**hole From El Paso.
Then there are the artists who hooked up with Imus along the way; Dwight Yokam is represented with “Intentional Heartache” and “Suspicious Minds”. Montgomery Gentry’s fellow travelers of the I-Man perform “My Town” (check out the YouTube). How many IITM references have there been to Big & Rich’s “Save A Horse and Ride A Cowboy” as well as “Kick My A*s”. Dwight Yokam is covering Zevons’ “Carmelita”. (Does anyone recall the Imus Ranch Doc sitting in a rocker singing “Carmelita” on MSNBC?)
Imus’ preference for strong country women is evident in the The Wreckers “Leave the Pieces”, Carrie Underwood’s “Before He Cheats” and Taylor Swift performing “Picture To Burn”.
Classic country artists Buck Owen’s “Together Again”, Billy Joe Shavers “The Devel Made Me Do It The First Time”, Johnny Paycheck with “Take This Job And Shove It” (Note:could not find “Rythm Guitar”). Also in the cassic category is Randy Travis’ “Heroes and Friends”.
Imus most recently is all over Brooks and Dunn’s “Put A Girl In It” and Hayes Carll “She left me for Jesus”.
What’s a country song without heartbreak? Lucinda Williams “Are You Alright” is certainly fitting for I-Fans everywhere.
