As most of you have probably heard by now, a great friend to me personally, FTM as a whole, and underground country music passed away on October 5th. Robert Earl Reed had big plans for his music over the next few months and one of the most exciting for him was being booked on the Moonrunners Fest 2014 bill. He was so excited by this opportunity he actually had written lyrics for a song just to open up his set at the festival. His plan was to find volunteers at the event from other bands to play with him and for each person on stage to sing one verse of his special song. He wanted it to have a very strong classic twang sound and he told me he believed it would blow the roof off the place. To the best of my knowledge he was going to do the song this one time and then retire it. Just a little something special for all of his friends in the crowd. Unfortunately that special moment will never come but we at FTM would like to offer to you the original lyrics to "Fuck The Bling" by Reverend Robert Earl Reed.
