No doubt, the most memorable part of our road trip is our time spent with the Mediocre Music Makers, Harley and Annabelle Russell, in Erick, Oklahoma. In a former Meat Market, now known as Sandhills Curiosity shop, the Russells entertain Route 66 travelers from all over the world with songs, dance, and cold beers. Sporting red-and-white striped bib tops, which they refer to as their redneck tuxedos, Harley and Annabelle put on a crazy and zany show. "We offer visitors that bit of authentic American culture they're looking for on the route," Harley says.
In this video, the Russells share their version of Bobby Troup's "Get Your Kicks on Route 66."
