Sometimes, I just want to put out a random comment, that may, or may not have anything to do with music. Sorry, it happens. Yesterday, I drove down to Arkansas to look at soybean plots. Northeast Arkansas is the king of cotton. Here's a picture of a cotton field that is ready for harvest. Took it today, mid afternoon.

You should hear Cornholio sing "Lesbian Seagull"

I will admit my ignorance on this issue. Didn't realize the US was such a big player:

"In marketing year (MY) 2019—August 2019-July 2020—the United States produced nearly 20 million bales of cotton, representing about $7 billion in total (lint plus seed) value"

Cotton may have been the number one cash crop in the US in the pre-civil war south.
Now of course it's cannabis. :)

Boy haven't seen one of those in many years. My Mother's oldest Sister and husband were cotton farmers in N Alabama. My Grandpa pulled Mom out of school after 3rd grade so she could help pick the cotton/hunt for food/etc. Since we're just floating along here, I'll also mention my Great Grandmother was Cherokee Indian. I suppose I have a lot of distant relatives up that way since a sizable number of kin live up thataway. (redundant? it's early)
Skynryd says it's a real nice place but it ain't nothin' to me. *j/k

I ahhh, am every so often at a cotton farm in Western Queensland, Australia, with family. Different world out there. Super controversial crop because of water and it being disturbingly dry most of the time. Can't relate it to music unless someone is familiar with Slim Dusty---

The photo reminds me of marshmallows on a plant!
