This One Goes Out to Mike Manning’s Boyfriend Tanner

Nothing is worse than a cheesy, stupid song celebrating the gays. That’s why we’ve had to do things like co-opt Mariah Carey’s “Hero” because otherwise we’d be singing “YMCA” for the rest of our lives. But here come Dixie Chicks’ sisters Martie Maguire and Emily Robison, in their side band Court Yard Hounds, who managed to piss off conservatives back in 2003 with some comments about that idiot who lived in the White House, with “Ain’t No Son,” a song about a gay kid coming out to his father. It is good!

And it would’ve been the perfect song to play over Mike and Tanner’s phone call.
