Biografía

Roger Alan Wade is an American singer-songwriter.

According to his website, Roger Alan Wade penned songs for country legends such as Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, George Jones and Hank Williams Jr. He embarked on a solo career with the promotional assistance of his cousin, actor Johnny Knoxville, who occasionally featured Wade's music on his TV show Jackass. He has also been featured on the TV show Wildboyz. During an appearance on the Howard Stern radio show, Knoxville promoted his cousin's songs, which were favorably received by Stern and his audience and given frequent airplay thereafter. Knoxville and Wade currently host an hour-long weekly show, "Big Ass Happy Family Jubilee" (named after a Wade song), on Sirius XM's Outlaw Country channel.

Wade's lyrics satirically and detrimentally deal with topics and stereotypes relating to redneck and honky tonk culture. His songs feature folky arrangements, featuring little or no accompaniment beyond acoustic guitar. His best known compositions include "BB Gun," "Butt Ugly Slut," "D-R-U-N-K," "Poontang," and "If You're Gonna Be Dumb." Wade's lesser known works are less hysterical and carry a more lyrical tone including "The First Time I Saw Waylon," "Brainerd Road," and "Jingle Jangle"

Wade currently does voiceover work for WUUQ 97.3 and 99.3 FM, a classic country station in Chattanooga, TN.
