Apalachee Don is back at it making great music, and with his new song, “Arkansas, GA”, he’s enlisted Big Chuk for a little help. When these two get together there’s always good music getting made.
“Arkansas, GA” isn’t Country Rap, it’s straight classic Renegade Country Rock, the kind you’d expect to hear in some Juke Joint on the side of the road, just at the edge of some one light town.
It’s a song about a traveling man, about these two making trips between Arkansas and Georgia these two always seem to be making for a show, to make music, or just to hang-out. Apalachee Don, who is the most authentic character in music today is wise beyond his years, and there’s always a lesson when he speaks. This one’s about keeping it together on the road, knowing where you come from, and where you’re going and those long trips in between.
I’ve heard Don sing a few times now, and he’s got a gift, not just for the rap, but a voice that that can tell a story without saying a word. He sounds as at home behind a mic singing as he does laying down hip-hop verses. “Arkansas, GA” only begins to show the range of this Monroe, Georgia artists, and it’ll leave you wanting more
Big Chuk, swear to God, has got to be channeling Waylon Jennings in “Arkansas, GA”. His deep soulful voice helps hammer home the renegade feel of this tune. Like Don, he’s not just a rapper. He had a few songs on his last album “Gravel Road” that were straight up country gold. This guy can do it all.
Okay, so it’s not Hick Hop but I don’t care. It’s got the same spirit that inspires country boys to do great things. The spirit of Hick Hop is in this song, even if there’s no rapping in it.
Apalachee Don and Big Chuk prove on “Arkansas, GA” that if a couple of country boys put their heads together, they can do anything.
