NASHVILLE, Tennessee - Samuel Wurzelbacher (aka Joe The Plumber) is on the verge of counry music stardom. His band Country Joe The Plumber & The Septic Tank Band will be going into the recording studio and recording their first album entitled, 'It's My Damn Trailer So The Friggin' Lid Stays Up.'
Wurzelbacher has just signed a contract with a Nashville public relations and management firm 'Rednecks Be Us'. Joe told a reporter for The Nashville Chronicle Cajoler that he cannot believe how fast things are moving.
He said, "Hell just a few weeks ago I was plumbing away knee deep in deep sh*t and today, I'm getting ready to go into the recording studio and make an album. I have been pinching myself so much lately that it looks like I sat my redneck ass down face first in a fire ant bed."
Joe's manager Beaudro 'Lefty' Wright said that he has already put together a group of five of the best musicians in Nashville. And they will comprise Joe's backup band. The five are all studio musicians who have worked with such country music artists as Shania Twain, Rascal Flatts, Carrie Underwood, George Strait and Charlie 'Chicken Coop' Cooper & The Chicken Finger-Lickin' Band.
The famed Nashville song writing team of Pettigrew, Pangburn, Paxton, and Pinkerton have already written the ten songs that will appear on Joe's first album (CD).
Pedro Pettigrew who was a plumber before he became an award winning songwriter said, "Having been in the plumbing business myself I know only too well all about the heartache, the anguish, the melancholy, and the sadness that is a part of the plumbing world. And I have to admit that a couple of the songs in the album are actually chapters in the plumbing soundtrack of my life."
Country Joe The Plumber & The Septic Tank Band's first CD is entitled: 'It's My Damn Trailer So The Friggin' Lid Stays Up.'
