Earl Dibbles Jr. — ‘If You’re City, If You’re Country’
Hilarious. And oh, too true.
That describes the fun summer reading provided by Earl Dibbles, Jr., If You’re City, If You’re Country. Earl Dibbles Jr. is the comedy alter-ego of country singer Granger Smith.
The book is full of comic truths from Earl Dibbles Jr., matched by spot-on illustrations by Patrick Biederer. In it, Dibbles Jr. expresses his expert opinion on fast food, huntin’, fishin’, shootin’ the breeze, neighborliness, and politics. He has put together a collection of observations comparing and contrasting life in the city versus the country:
“If you’re city… a good network is great when you need to download a big file.
If you’re country… good net work is great when you need to upload a big bass into the boat.”
The book comes with a CD. So how is it? It’s everything you’d expect from Earl Dibbles Jr. Lyrics state exactly what’s on the country boy’s mind, propelled by a tune with energy that mirrors those thoughts. On the CD, he performs somee of his greatest hits: “The Country Boy Song,” “Country Boy Love,” “City Boy Stuck,” “Merica,” and “Don’t Tread on Me.” You’ll want to turn this collection of five songs (along with an audio reading of the book for those who don’t consider having to read a good way to spend a day) way up. It’s the perfect read/listen for the dwindling days left of summer 2018.
