Overview

Hairdresser turned song parodist Cledus T. Judd casts his satirical net a bit wider than usual on Just Another Day in Parodies. Straying outside the country field, he zeroes in on Kid Rock on "Plowboy," a riotous sendup of the Kid's "Cowboy," reconsidered here from the viewpoint of a fellow who's sucked up his fair share of dust while riding his John Deere tractor and feeding his pigs. A couple of Dixie Chicks songs (including "Goodbye Earl," or "Goodbye Squirrel," as it's retitled here) and Kenny Chesney's "She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy," recast as a rollicking prison tale called "My Cellmate Thinks I'm Sexy," are out-there in a typically Cletusized manner. John Anderson and Brad Paisley prove themselves good sports by actually showing up to duet with Judd, the latter sitting in on "My Beaver" (inspired by Paisley's hit "Me Neither"), a double-edged tribute to TV's Cleaver clan. Throw in a tale of familial Yuletide mayhem, "Merry Christmas from the Whole Fam Damily," and you've got a perfect stocking stuffer for anyone with a permanently twisted sense of humor.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
Cledus T. Judd celebrates his ascension to major-label status on his fifth album by taking on his new labelmates, the Dixie Chicks, on two songs, "Goodbye Squirrel," which rewrites "Goodbye Earl" into a hunting story, and "Wife Naggin'," a self-explanatory takeoff on "Sin Wagon." Brad Paisley's "Me Neither" gets transformed into the double entendre "More Beaver," which is nominally about a desire for more reruns of Leave It to Beaver, with help from Paisley himself on several instruments, and John Anderson sings the choruses of the original song "Momma's Boy," essentially a standup routine set to music. But the cleverest parodies are "My Cellmate Thinks I'm Sexy" (think Kenny Chesney's "She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy"), which discusses the legal difficulties of some country stars, and the deconstruction of Toby Keith's massive hit "How Do You Like Me Now," reimagined as "How Do You Milk a Cow." Judd branched out into pop music last time by making fun of Ricky Martin; this time he ventures into rock by turning Kid Rock's "Cowboy" into "Plowboy." But he's on firmer ground with his country satires, which are full of asides about Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, and Billy Gilman that country fans will appreciate. As usual, the more familiar you are with the country music scene, the funnier you will find this stuff, but a lot of it works on its own terms.

I have been listening to Cletus' music since I was 16 years old and I admite I am a country fan, but his versions of the songs he has rewritten are the funniest songs I have ever listened to. I think he's better than Jeff Foxworthy and Bill put together. (Sorry guys)
