David Frizzell is not only known to be the brother of the famous country singer and influencer Lefty Frizzell. He also rose to fame when his collaboration with Shelly West went straight to number one on the Billboard Hot Country chart. “You’re the Reason God Make Oklahoma” was the amazing collaboration done by West and Frizzell.
His Solo Career
As a solo artist, Frizzell barely secured any song on the top ten of the country chart, not until he reached number one with West. The following year, Frizzell finally welcomed his first number one song on the country chart as a solo artist. “I’m Gonna Hire a Wino to Decorate Our Home” is a song penned by Dewayne Blackwell, the man behind the hit single “Friends in Low Places” by Garth Brooks. The song was written and released in 1982 as part of his first solo album The Family’s Fine, But This One’s All Mine, and as a single.
First No. 1 Song
“I’m Gonna Hire a Wino to Decorate Our Home” reached number one on the Billboard country chart and number three on the Canadian country chart. Furthermore, Frizzell’s single has also secured a spot on the Canadian pop chart.
The Content of “I’m Gonna Hire a Wino to Decorate Our Home”
The song “I’m Gonna Hire a Wino to Decorate Our Home” is a story told by a drunk husband. One day, he heard his wife telling him about her plan of hiring a wino who’ll turn their house into a bar. Her plan will definitely stop him from going out every weekend and spend his paycheck on beer. She even told him to invite his friends so that the money they’ll pay will all go to their bank. What a splendid idea, indeed. She will solve her problem of waiting for her husband every night because he’s always going to the bar, and she even earns some money.
She said: “Just bring your Friday paycheck, and I’ll cash them all right here.
“And I’ll keep on tap – for all your friends, their favorite kinds of beer.
“For you, I’ll always keep in stock, those soft aluminum cans.
“And when you’re feeling macho, you can crush them like a man.”
