Raw And Uncensored: Wheeler Walker Jr On Why Country Music Is So Damn Lame Right Now
Retired General Colin Powell, U.S. Senator John McCain, Burt Reynolds, Tommy Lee during the Pam Anderson years, and Wheeler Walker, Jr. – perhaps the most efficient and accurate list of the greatest Americans in the history of history.
And while Mr. Walker – the country music legend – recently lost in his bid to become the American Mustache Institute’s Robert Goulet Memorial Mustached American of the Year to fellow performer Romeo Dance Cheetah, he remains a modern-day pop culture legend and force to be reckoned with in country music.
Indeed, his first ablum “Redneck Shit” debuted at #9 on the Billboard Music country charts and was hailed by the likes of Rolling Stone, Tiger Beat and the Christian Science Monitor.
Recently I sat down with Mr. Walker as part of the American Mustache Institute’s Peabody Award-winning series “The Mustache Interview,” through which I’ve chatted up the likes of quarterback Aaron Rodgers, rockers John Oates, Jim James and Dave Navarro; NFL coach Jeff Fisher, comedy legend Harry Shearer and more.
We discussed his new record “Ol’ Wheeler,” his take on Coldplay and the next president of the United States – Kid Rock.
