Aaron Lewis Takes on Tyler Farr’s “Redneck Crazy”

Tyler Farraaron-lewis

Tyler Farr may have a hit single with “Redneck Crazy” but fellow country artist Aaron Lewis is NOT a fan. In fact, he’s even been performing a response to “Redneck Crazy” written by a buddy of his.

Feel free to watch the video…however, take note that the language is pretty darn harsh.

Aaron seems a tad bitter that “Redneck Crazy” hit no. 1 and also earned Tyler an ACM New Artist of the Year nomination.

What do you think of the song?

The Boeing B-29 Superfortress began active duty at the end of World War II in 1944 as a replacement for the B-17’s and B-24’s. The B-29 had longer range and greater bomb loads which was necessary for operations in the pacific theater, and was the first bomber with a pressurized cabin, electronic fire control systems, and remote controlled gun torrents. The B-29 is best known for dropping the atomic bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki which resulted in Japan’s surrender. The B-29 continued its service during the Korean War and was retired in 1960.

The CAF aircraft will be on display from today through July 7th. Hours of operation are from 2 PM – 6:30 today, and from 9 AM – 6:30 PM July 3-7. Cost of admission is $10 per person, and $20 for family admission (mom, dad, and children under 17) Children 10 and under are free. Cockpit tours of the B-29 are included in the admission price when the aircraft is not in motion.

Rides are available on the aircraft. The B-29 will fly at 9 AM, and 10:30 AM on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The C-45 will fly on demand throughout the event.

Ride prices start at $65 for the C-45 and $595 for the B-29. There is a discount if you reserve online. Ride reservations may be made at or call (432) 413-4100.
