Daryle Singletary, “Jesus and Bartenders”

Daryle Singletary, “Jesus and Bartenders”

Singletary covers an Rebecca Lynn Howard album track from a few years back.   It’s a classic country honky-tonk number, and while Howard’s original version has its charms, Singletary’s a natural fit for a song like this.    Singletary isn’t the most creative male country vocalist, given how derivative his style is of country crooners like George Jones and Randy Travis, but that style is a perfect fit for a song that sounds like a b-side from either of those legend’s careers.
