Brad Paisley Pays Tribute To Roger Miller With "Dang Me" [WATCH]

July 27, 2018

Known for his rather quirky songwriting style and comical lyrics, Miller was responsible for one of my childhood favorites, “Oo-de-Lally,” from the Disney animated film Robin Hood. However, this cover from Brad Paisley takes a much darker turn. “Dang Me,” juxtaposes an incredibly cheerful melody with a self-deprecating, and frankly dark, humor about a guy that screws up so much that they should just hang him. Yeah, it’s pretty dark, however, a pretty good example of Miller’s humorous writing style. Perfect for Brad Paisley.

This song won a Grammy in 1964 for Best Country & Western Song. You could never get away with that today.
