Mikhail Ivanov Country music with chip bass/drums and real banjo, pedal steel etc. Recommended for getting drunk to. Really good in getting you drunk fast. Not only in chain restaurants. Favorite track: Drunk at the Applebee's.

President Hoodie If I were confident in knowin' anything (& I ain't), I was pretty sure that I was a lonely man here on God's green Earth in knowin' just *how* much the world needed more country chipmusic in it. And then I invited Bud Melvin's album 'CNTRY & NESTRNT' into my heart & I ain't never been the same since y'all. #Cheers! Favorite track: Drunk at the Applebee's.

Akira K. Bud Melvin releases one of those albums that, back in the day when I started getting into contemporary chipmusic, would make me look up on the scene with much respect and awe of the talent and adventurousness displayed by him and other pioneers in making the music that was being produced at the time.
No adept of chipmusic can ever be without some good old (and new) Bud Melvin. Please make more. Favorite track: Biscuits & Gravy.

Track Name: Biscuits & Gravy
Biscuits & Gravy
Tell me, baby
What are you tryin' to do to me?
Biscuits & Gravy
Baby, lately
I've been cravin' biscuits & gravy every day.

Well I didn't want to do it
But I guess I knew it
The day that I began to fall for you
You cooked me up some steak
Chicken-fried and on the side
Was biscuits & gravy, too.

Biscuits & Gravy
Tell me, baby
What are you tryin' to do to me?
Biscuits & Gravy
Baby, lately
I've been cravin' biscuits & gravy every day.

I never got much thinner
Since you cooked me dinner
But I'd been craving breakfast all the while.
You made me crave it so
That you know I had to go
I had to go and walk you down the aisle.

Biscuits & Gravy
Tell me, baby
What are you tryin' to do to me?
Biscuits & Gravy
Baby, lately
I've been cravin' biscuits & gravy every day.

Well the kids think they're delicious
But I'm a bit suspicious
'Cause nothing seems to taste the same to me.
I just don't understand
But I guess some other man
Has got you cooking up a brand new recipe.

Biscuits & Gravy
Tell me, baby
What are you tryin' to do to me?
Biscuits & Gravy
Baby, lately
I've been cravin' biscuits they way they used to be.
Track Name: Drunk at the Applebee's
Chilling in the suburbs
Looking at some crossword puzzles
on a Saturday night.
Sittin' on my bar stool
Feelin' like a darn fool
Wishin' I was feeling alright.
Game is on the TV.
I hope nobody sees me.
I'm sinkin' so damn low.
'Cause it's a Saturday night and I've go no where else to go

Woe is me
I got a buzz like you wouldn't believe.
Had 3 or 4 Miller Lites
A couple more in my sights
And I could use some company.
I guarantee
That it's a pitiful site to see
Woe oh woe is me
I'm getting drunk at the Applebee's.

Reading on my iPad.
I'll take a shot of Grandad.
It's looking at me from the shelf.
Now here's a real cutie.
She's sittin' right next to me
I think I'd rather keep to my self.
Bartender thinks he's funny.
Do I want two for twenty?
I sigh and shake my damn head no.
'Cause it's a Saturday night and I'm sittin' here all alone.

Woe is me
I got a buzz like you wouldn't believe.
Had 3 or 4 Miller Lites
A couple more in my sights
And I could use some company.
I guarantee
That it's a pitiful site to see
Woe oh woe is me
I'm getting drunk at the Applebee's
Track Name: Bartender
Bartender, bartender, pour me a drink.
Keep my glass full 'til I'm too drunk to think.
I'll give you a dollar for your last cigarette.
This is one night that I'd like to forget.

Well sometimes you win, but usually you lose.
Sometimes you tie but you still wind up screwed.
Sometimes you have, but usually have not.
But now, while you're at it, I think I'll have one more shot.

There's been some good times, there's been bad times, too.
Then there's the times that I spent here with you.
Slowly forgetting what time is at all.
Until you inform me, it's time for last call.
Track Name: Wet T-Shirt Contest
32 years old and just out of the service
Couldn't find a job and felt a little bit worthless
Xbox all day, hangin' with my bros all night

Playin Toby Keith on the radio
A whole lotta beer and a little bit of smoke
Turnt on up, pretending it's all right

Then my pickup tuck got repossessed
Had to borrow dough to go and take the dog to the vet
So broke and worn out it made me want to scream

Then I got a text, about a new place in town
The crew was gonna go and let it all hang out
Gonna hit the club, and have the night of my dreams.

It's got me saying, 'oh yes'
Tonight is the night of the wet t-shirt contest
Use your eyes, those women have breasts
No imagination wet t-shirt contest
It's got me saying, 'oh yes'
Tonight is the night of the wet t-shirt contest
It's got me saying, 'oh yes'
Tonight is the night

That's the night my life changed forever
I loaned the second runner my crew neck sweater
And soon she made herself a part of my life

Then I accidentally snuck a shot past goal
It had me praying lord please no
but I went and made that woman my wife

No more pickup truck, got a Honda Odyssey
Took a job at the mall and I couldn't believe
How free and fun and far my old life seemed

Now I'm watching the clock all day Thursday
Gonna punch out of work and wash the world away
Gonna hit the club and have the night of my dreams

It's got me saying, 'oh yes'
Tonight is the night of the wet t-shirt contest
Use your eyes, those women have breasts
No imagination wet t-shirt contest
It's got me saying, 'oh yes'
Tonight is the night of the wet t-shirt contest
It's got me saying, 'oh yes'
Tonight is the night

They say that Jesus Christ died for our sins
But if I keep on sinning am I killing him again and again?
Oh Lord, I don't want his blood on my hands.
No Ford, I'm rollin' in my minivan
From Japan, it fits the whole family.
Oh man, it's got so many seats.
My Honda Odyssey, it gets a great MPG
