McBride’s powerhouse country vocals combine with slick guitar riffs to produce a strong, toe-tapping collaboration. “Just an old country boy, wearing my OshKosh boots/ Walk by the trailer factory, every day on my way to school/ Early on in life the only thing I want to do/ Is buy me a trailer and move it down to Grandview,” he sings in the opening verse.

Sad Clowns and Hillbillies also features Carlene Carter, daughter of June Carter Cash and stepdaughter of Johnny Cash.
