Musically Declined: Stock Car Racing’s Entertainers of the Year, I’m Puttin’ You in My Rear View

Stock Car Racing and Country Music—two pillars of culture in the Southern United States.  And the two have mingled throughout the years.  So put on your racing shoes, make sure they match your cowboy hat, and settle in for a look back at some of Nascar’s biggest stars turned Nashville wannabes!

The Song: I’m Puttin’ You in My Rear View by Mark Morell

The Star: Buddy Baker

The Clip: 

The Review: And we finally have it—a repeat singer from “Nascar Goes Country”.  Buddy was the best on that album, but you can tell his voice has aged pretty quickly in the past decade.  Then again, it doesn’t help that his song is about…drafting.  Seriously—its not an analogy for anything, its just a song about passing someone by using the slingshot pass.

The Verdict: Nice try Buddy, but stick to Butterbeans.
