Oh you poor sumbitch, your fucked now..

The 71-year old writer of that great ol ballad "Lucille" has been popped. I ain't talking a couple of joints here, I am saying 'shrooms and growing cannabis isn't popular with the Country Music set in Nashville. The breaking news story,which can be viewed here, states Mr. Hal Bynum and his lovely 48 year old wife Jan, were in possession of the following:

256 pot plants, 7.5 pounds of harvested marijuana, 14 grams of hallucinogenic mushrooms, growing lamps and other drug paraphernalia including scales, rolling papers, and tanks of CO-2.

Something tells me his wife took more of an active part in the cultivation and harvesting of the cannabis than Hal did..I'm just saying...she could get his ass off the hook here. Prison isn't a nice way to spend your golden years to a 71 year old man.

8 people gave us their .02 cents:

I had always thought Kenny Rogers wrote Lucille.

this is crazeeeeee. lol. I know that song Lucille. How interesting.

S. R. said...

I didn't think that fucker wrote any of his songs. Even Dolly Parton writes her own music (I think).

all kenny did was cheat on his wife. the one that got him through the lean years.

fucker is right.

Peter Matthes said...

Is it just me, or does Kenny look like he has had some serious "work" done recently?

I wish Hal had invited me over to get rid of the evidence.

My Favorite part of the story: WTVF-TV quotes the Bynums as saying that they were selling drugs to raise money for an awareness campaign against terrorist organizations.

Why can't they just sell candy bars like the rest of western civilization?
