Country Comedian Cledus T. Judd Actually Tries To Sing



NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Wireless Flash) – Country-singing comedian Cledus T. Judd is trying something funny: Singing in a normal voice. Ever since 1996, Judd has been country music’s answer to Weird Al Yankovic, singing spoofy songs like “Did I Shave My Back For This?” in a cornpone accent straight from Hee Haw. However, he’s decided to do his fans a favor and “sing a little better” on his new CD, Cledus Envy. Judd says he spent a week writing the lyrics for “Breath,” his spoof of Faith Hill’s “Breath,” and got so wound up trying to match the original song’s rhyme scheme, he ended up “...kickin’ s over.” The extra effort paid off. He says many performers who used to get mad when he made fun of their ditties now get mad when he doesn’t.
