There Ain’t Enough Country Music on the East End

Our area is known for many things. Country music is not one of them. Although I applaud the WHPAC (Westhampton Performing Arts Center) for bringing some big-name country acts to the stage, it is not enough.

If we pride ourselves on being champions of diversity here, then why is there not more of a country music presence? I think the solution may be to hold an Annual Hamptons Country Music Symposium. With this, we can certainly attract some first class country performers.

I’ve already written a Hamptons ditty to help fill the country music void. Here it is…

Wishin’ there was a piece on how to keep her

But I guess you didn’t love this place
Too many hipsters all up in your face
How there ain’t no real country things
That you miss those bending guitar strings

Searching for a country station from the radio list
I’d trade my Mercedes for a pick-up truck
If it would help me somehow get unstuck
But for now there’s nothing I can do
But write this sad country song for you

CHORUS
Now I sit here reading stories from Dan’s Paper
Wishin there was a piece on how to keep her
