It’s Throwback Thursday and that means you get to hear great songs from the 80’s, 90’s and the early 2000’s that you don’t get to hear everyday on K-FROG.
I get tons of requests during the All Request Drive Thru Lunch. Sometimes there are some really awesome song requests that I just don’t have time to play. That’s why I’ve decided to do the Throwback Thursday Lunchtime Leftover.
“Ol’ Red” used to be one of the most requested Blake Shelton songs around here. The song was originally recorded by the legendary George Jones and was included on his 1990 album You Oughta Be Here with Me.
Kenny Rogers covered the song on his 1993 album If Only My Heart Had a Voice. However, neither artist ever released “Ol’ Red” as a single.
Blake Shelton recorded the song and released it in 2002. It was the third and final single from his self-titled debut album. “Ol’ Red” found itself only in the Top 20 on the country music charts.
Fans love and are reminded of the Paul Newman movie Cool Hand Luke by the lyrics. Enjoy!
