Bare hits the "wahoo" note just right

Legendary country heavyweight Bobby Bare has a new/old one, "Darker Than Light" and it's the debut of a new label, Plowboy Records. He applies his world weary twang to a bunch of classic songs made slower such "House of the Rising Sun" and "Boll Weevil." To tell the truth, I thought this was the kid, Bare Jr., a hilariously funny rockin' redneck of Americana fame, but the dad has been around since the sundowns was in black & white and knows what's what for those whose world view is slightly to the right of "wahoo."
