Far as I know, he wrote himself a little song, and just felt like singing it. He's not bad. It's strictly country, and pretty good in that genre. I don't hear any instruments, so that's another thing in his favor.

It's on my IPod, and has been for some time.

Elvis certainly came by it honestly. :smt023

Sorry, but I can't stand his singing.

To me it's more like: "Well, let's see if I got some singing talent.....my son does, so do I........maybe?"

Nothing can beat ol' Grampa Presley......Who's that kickin' my dog around ::rocks

Has anyone tried to overdub some instruments on this? Maybe a few little effects for ambience? That would make it sound less homemade.

It would be pretty easy.

Vernon had a "Church" voice as I would call it. Not great but no bad. Good for church.!
