Danny Shirley, lead singer of Confederate Railroad, explains how the group came to re-record their hit single “Trashy Women.”
Confederate Railroad celebrates 20 years of “Trashy Women” with a new release of that 1993 hit featuring Willie Nelson, John Anderson, Colt Ford and former NFL coach Jerry Glanville. Shirley admitted that at first he didn’t see why they should cut the song again. Songwriter Bernie Nelson convinced him they could ask others to join them on the new version. Shirley says he agreed with the stipulation that all money from the sale of the song go to his charity, the Hunter Worley Foundation.
The foundation is named after the son of a friend of Shirley’s who died when his father accidentally backed over him. The song is on Confederate Railroad’s new album, “Lucky To Be Alive.”
