Roger Alan Wade
After listening to the blue country humor songs of Roger Alan Wade, it will probably come as no surprise to you that he contributed music to the soundtrack of the MTV Jackass movie. And with songs titles like "Butt Ugly Slut" or "Poontang," you'll be equally unsurprised to learn that he's a favorite of the Howard Stern Show. Hell, you might even liken his talent to the outsider "art songs" of the late Wesley Willis after hearing "All Likkered Up." But what you probably don't know is that Roger Alan Wade is a genius who spends his time in libraries reading Ernest Hemingway, Jack Kerouac, James Joyce, Marcel Proust, T.S. Eliot and John Steinbeck. The man has also scribed songs sung and recorded by the likes of Hank Williams, Jr., Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, George Jones, Barbara Mandrell, Confederate Railroad and Waylon Jennings.
