Musically Declined: Stock Car Racing’s Entertainers of the Year, The Man Geoff Bodine

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: The Man, Geoff Bodine by Jeannie Seely & Jay Marshall

The Star: Geoff Bodine (obviously)

The Clip: 

The Review: Wow.  This is…bad.  So much cringe.  From Geoff pretending to be country (dude’s from New York State) to his warbling voice to the self-aggrandizing title.  Then again, Geoff Bodine having an inflated sense of self-importance is the most Geoff Bodine thing I could ever imagine.

The Verdict: Straddles the line between “so bad its good” and “unlistenable”.
