Charlie Influences all kindza music, G: `hick-hop'

Herald.com | 05/15/2005 | Add a new term to the lexicon: `hick-hop':

Charlie influences all forms of music. Some dude from Dallas named Cowboy Troy listens to Charlie, and was influenced by "early forms of country-rap by Charlie Daniels (The Devil Went Down to Georgia) and Jerry Reed (She Got the Goldmine (I Got the Shaft)) -- 'they were called `recitations' back then.''"

Charlie also hick-hopped, or whatever you'd like to call it, through Uneasy Rider in 1973 and revisited it in 1988. A great example is Every Time I See Him which was an original on the Decade of Hits album.

As a side note, this article showed up again with a differenty byline here , where they referenced Amos Moses by Jerry Reed instead of the Goldmine song, which contains no recitation. Reed does say things in it like, "Lousiana law gonna getchya, Moses!" but they're more like exclamations than recitations. There is an entire sub-genre of country music that is nothing but recitations with songs like Hot Rod Lincoln and A Boy Named Sue, not to mention One Piece at a Time.
