Album Cover With A Wise County Reference



I know I've posted this before but can't remember the background of the story. If you spell a destination "Rhome" you are talking about Wise County.

The old 97's connection to Wise County is old and well known. This post is stupid.

I’m famous!

Also, I wouldn’t call it successful. It was pretty painful.

Hitchhiking to Rhôme to take a bus to Fredericksburg? That’s some hard times right there.

There is a lot more hitchhikers and vagabonds in Rhome now, as they camp in the woods surrounding the town after hitching a ride to Loves.

The Old 97's & Rhett Miller are faker than George Dunham's fake mr. announcer guy voice.


In other wise county news, the Texas Country Reporter Show will have a segment on The Whistlestop Cafe in Decatur this upcoming weekend. check your local listings.

Why would anyone want to hitchhike to Rhome? Have you seen the videos of cops and council members fighting? YouTube and Rhome TX events Facebook page show why you should stay away and never come back! It’s the old south mentality there! Someone would make a fortune putting up Confederate statues there.

Well, I am old but not that well known and I have never heard of this album or the connection. Thanks Barry. I don’t think your post is stupid, just odd. Just because you might not agree with someone does not necessarily make them stupid. Sounds a bit judgemental.

Editing comment to be fair to the rest of the Old 97's.

Rhett Miller of the Old 97's is faker than George Dunham's fake mr. announcer guy voice.

the problem with hitchhiking to Rhome is that you've got to hitchhike back out.

Rhett Miller is no fake. He is just haaawwwttt. Especially in his white pants. Wheels off alt country. "Lets get drunk and get it on" is my favorite love song.

97s are a really good Ft.Worth based group, World Famous and pretty fabulous purveyors of loud folk music.
