Alternatively, you can throw in some bluff-stackoffs to keep them on their toes, but I'd rather go for the micro-c-bet/minraise/slam -- it convinces the table that you are a terrible player who sells out his big hands with small bets.
I have a lot to learn still, but it seems like the idea is to crack the whip on a lot of turns, whether for value or for a bluff. I'm still working through it, so I'm not going to extrapolate on that just yet.

There’s some that’s tolerable, like this song, Must Be The Whiskey by Cody Jinks. Not sure if that gets radio play though.
It's not my favorite genre by a longshot, but I've always had a few favorites.

When I was a kid it was Charlie Daniels: first (in my youthful chronological order, not Charlie's) it was The Devil Went Down to Georgia, then The Legend of Wooley Swamp, then Still in Saigon, then Uneasy Rider, then Charlie and I had a philosophical parting of the ways, so to speak.

The last few years it's been Johnny Cash. This one's the current favorite--a little country, a little blues, a little gospel, and a lot of ass kicking.
