You May Be Surprised at How Many ‘Dicks’ Have Had Hit Country Songs [VIDEO]
I admit I ain't wired right. I still giggle at things that are probably inappropriate to most. Flatulence and juvenile humor will still tickle me. I still laugh when someone names the planets and says 'Uranus' and laugh at most things lavatorial. I admit to even snickering at roll call when Dick and Peter are called for. I am sorry but I can't fight my inner child. Which is why is I had to look into just how many 'Dicks' have had hits in country music.
Country music has had thousands of artists through the years. We have had guys named Garth, Faron, Dierks, Ferlin, Porter, Merle and Waylon all with hit songs but one name I never see is Dick. I looked and looked and looked and only came up with one Dick and one Dickey.
Dickey Lee had a number one hit with “Rocky” in 1975 and 3 other top 10’s in the 70’s. The only other one I could find was Dick Curless who it number 5 in 1965 with a song called “A Tombstone Every Mile”. I knew it wasn’t a name that hit the charts frequently but was surprised at how few there were. If your name is Dick, grab a guitar and learn to play. You could become the most popular Dick in the history of music.
