I had written a song, after having exactly the same dream 3 nights in a row- A first for me. It was then confirmed several days later, when the subject matter came up in a movie. I knew then I had to write this song! However I had to have a twist added to the song to make it my own. I would make it into a story, into A fictional BALLAD! Since I love Wolves- I now had the perfect opportunity to include a bit of creativity to my idea.
It started as a dare, a song entitled “The Bitch Of Country Music” after a friend in the recording studio jokingly called me "The Bitch Of Irish Country Music". Now two versions of the song I wrote shortly after that, have been recorded. I didn't want to record an Irish country version as I prefer writing and singing US styled country music, among other genres.
The song title is a slight dig at some of the Irish country artistes continually singing and recording variations of the same songs that have been recorded by many artistes before. The song itself tells the story of "The Bitch Of Country Music" who takes on the “Divil” himself and wins. And, yes you've guessed it another comedy, but this time a US styled song.
As well as the “explicit” version. Not really explicit, more “not for the easily offended” there's a radio friendly version, left that the listener can fill in the blanks for themselves. That version is called “The Bleep Song” which you can listen to a snippet here...
The unedited version of "The Bitch Of Country Music" will be on my forthcoming album due to be released next year.
