While the phenomenon of the country-bumpkin comedian is probably as old as comedy itself, the 1990s saw a surge of popularity for country comics like Rodney Carrington, Cledus T. Judd, and Jeff Foxworthy. Carrington's act is a combination of Foxworthy's redneck humor and Judd's biting country music satire. Accordingly, his two-disc GREATEST HITS collection is split down the middle between a "Stand-up" disc and a "Music" disc. In both his musical and verbal comedy routines, Carrington moves a step beyond many of his peers by adding an X-rated flavor to his work. Throughout GREATEST HITS, he freely inserts expletives and "adult" situations into the stand-up material he delivers to a hardy audience, and offers no-holds-barred musical odes to his genitals and the female anatomy. It's definitely not for children or the easily offended, but GREATEST HITS plainly has a tailor-made audience ready to snap it up.
