I was 6 years old, Forest Gump was in theaters, O.J. was running from the cops in a white Ford Bronco and Alan Jackson was giving a huge middle finger to the Academy of Country Music with his performance of “Gone Country.”
Although Jackson ended up taking home quite a few awards and was nominated for a bunch of others, he got pissed when the Academy told him that he had to perform with a pre-recorded backing track.
So what did Alan do? He sent his drummer Bruce Rutherford out there with no drumsticks. Classic.
Whiskey Riff is the most entertaining country site…ever.
