If you enjoy going to the casinos and playing the slots or playing the card game of Texas Hold’em or just a fan of country gambling songs in general , do I have a CD for you .
Let me tell you a little about each one of the songs I’ve written and the covers I’ve chosen for this project .
# 1 “ Darned Ole Casinos “
Most everyone has visited a casino and has put some money in a slot machine trying to hit the big jackpot .
Well , I’ve done it a lot of times and have gotten carried away and lost more than I should have . Then about two weeks later I received a note in the mail from the casino with an offer of a free room and points for a buffet dinner if I’d come back and play .
This song is about the weakness I have for those Darned Ole Casinos .
# 2 “ Friday Night Poker Game “ .
I had asked Lonnie Ratliff of the Nashville Showcase if he had any songs about gambling in his library of originals or if he would be interested in co-writing an original with me.
He used to play dominos years ago on Friday nights with some friends . So , he wrote some lyrics about playing poker in the same type of environment and it fit what I was raised doing on the weekends to a T.
I came from a big family of four brothers and a little sister . Our past time was playing rummy and other fun card games . After we were grown and had a job making our own living my Daddy let us play poker with him and his friends on the weekends . My uncles , cousins and friends would gather around my Mother’s kitchen table and play poker .
So I changed a few of the lyrics and names paid a friend of mine Kevin Bailey to write a cord aggression for the song . After all of the instrument fills and back up vocals we came up with a song that I think will be a classic .
# 3 “ Big Slick “
The Texas Hold''em Dream Machine " BIG SLICK " is now available for viewing .
In January of 2008 I had stopped by to visit a friend of mine , Bobby Kerr in Hico , Texas. He and his son Cody was working on building a custom chopper called “ Rodeo “. The bike was destined to be an award winner in the custom chopper bike world and that is exactly what happened .
I asked Bobby & Cody if they would be interested in helping me design and build a custom chopper with a Texas Hold’em theme using some chrome barbwire as a touch of class . They loved the idea and after a year and three months of thinking , planning , building , fabricating , assembling , testing and experimenting , the Texas Hold’em dream machine ; “ Big Slick “ was created with 14 autographs of World Texas Hold''em Poker Champions . I think it is destined to also be an award winner . Big Slick is the first of the Texas Hold’em series of custom Choppers designed by Cline & Kerr. Bikes like ; Cowboys , Twin Chicks , AJ , Dolly Pardon , etc. are yet to come.
We hope that all the casinos in the US will be interested in displaying : “ BIG SLICK “ as an attraction at their next Poker Main Event .
# 4 “ Texas Hold’em “
I was invited to play the game , Texas Hold’em with some new friends . It was a fun game but believe me I was getting a lesson in how to lose money . But , I found the game to be a really fun past time and I chalked it up as expensive entertainment .
So I decided to start writing songs about my learning experience and some of the terminology used in the game of Texas Hold’em .
# 5 “ Brand New Friends “
After losing more then I could afford to dish out for entertainment , I found the game online . I can play for free with play money with thousands of folks from all over the world . I can play anytime I want to , right here at my house with the click of a mouse and I don’t loose a dime . So , I was glad to find me some Brand New Friends .
# 6 “ Texas Hold’em Championship Bracelet “
I have watched on TV a lot of the World Series of Poker games . When the game is down to the final two players , a bunch of fine looking ladies will bring out millions of dollars and pile it up three feet high on one end of the table . But there is another reward there on the very top that money can’t buy . It’s something made of diamonds and gold and nothin’ can replace it . It’s the Texas Hold’em Championship Bracelet .
# 7 “ I’m All In “
You’ll hear a lot of things said during a game . Some are negative and some are positive . but they’re just trying to get into your head . For the most part , all is ignored and paid no attention . However , there is three little words that everybody always pays attention to . They can bring your game to an end . The words are ; I’m All In .
# 8 “ Bad Beat Blues “
You can be dealt a monster hand like quad Aces and think that you have the hand won . Odds are you will . But there is a remote chance someone will hit a better hand . That would be the straight flush to expose the definition of a Bad Beat .
There’s nothing you can do except suffer with , the Bad Beat Blues .
# 9 “ Lady Luck “
Yes sir , Lady Luck can bring fortune , fame or shame . If you draw out on someone , you have Lady Luck to thank . But if you’re the one that gets drawn out on , you have Lady Luck to blame .
# 10 “ That Almighty River “
To be a winner , you have to take a gamble from time to time . Sometime , you’re putting your tournament life on the line . The river card can make or break ya without a doubt , it can double you up or take you out .
# 11 “ The Gambler “
This cover song is a classic . I sincerely hope you will enjoy our version of it . It’s one of two cover songs recorded as a duet with my son , Bryan Cline ( https://www.tradebit.com ) .
# 12 “ Ace In The Hole “
Another classic gambling song that Bryan & I recorded as a duet . I believe the sound of the clarinet really adds a little more touch of class to this already excellent hit song .
# 13 “ All The King Georges “
A friend of mine , Mr. Farrell Knight , had this song on his CD titled ; Wanted Man . Being the classic country music fan that I am , I asked him if he would mind if I also recorded the song for my next CD project . He gave me his blessings .
Even though it has nothing to do with gambling , I just wanted to give something extra to all the fans of country music .
