MDK Presents: World Premiere!

Dear Kay,
You loved him in H-E-D-G-E. You wept with him In the Hamptons.
Oh, lord have mercy, Merle Hazard is back, more animated than ever.
I am proud to present the world premiere, at least in the bi-regional knitting blog world, of the new smash hit from everybody’s favorite financial twangster, Merle Hazard: Green with Envy.

Share the luv! Pass it on to your favorite recycler.
The guy looks more and more like Hubbo EVERY DAY. Maybe I’m just dreamin’.
Love,
Ann

  1. So when is Merle gonna release a CD? He’s certainly building quite the body of work.

  2. Perhaps Merle Hazard will go on book tour with you!

  3. Hi Ann,
    I would love to get a copy of this to show at the national meeting of Presbyterians this coming week — I’ve got an environmental booth that would be great – any chance of getting the file?

  4. Awesome. And so inspiring. Captures the zeitgeist as only Nashville can.

  5. I am speechless.

  6. Wow. The face of country music sure is changing… Love the knitted hemp sandals

  7. Whoever this guy is, you gotta fall for a knitted sandal reference in the lyrics. sigh.

  8. So, did you notice Al Gore singing back-up? Gotta love the production values!
    That man SERIOUSLY owes you yarn money!

  9. love it loveit!

  10. Love the video and the message behind it. What a talented group of singers, animators (sp?) and song writers!!

  11. Outstanding! Has Al seen it yet? Animation is really fun!

  12. Love it! And I actually have a friend who’s husband left her with two tiny kids — and one of his parting shots was that “she didn’t care enough about recycling”. The “other woman” he met at the Save the Whales meetings apparently did.

  13. OMG, this is awesome! I love Al Gore singing back-up…what a talented guy Merle is!

  14. merle is inciting millions to recycle as i type this. He’s obviously next in line for the nobel. Maybe he and al can get together and compare medals!

  15. Another triumph! I’m already working on some “I Heart Hazard” T-shirts! Will he be at Bonaroo next year?!

  16. That’s too funny!I have to send this to my very “green” daughter!….. it sure must be fun to live in your house!Wendy

  17. ‘knitted hemp’. A classic. But that blonde doesn’t look too much like you, does she??? x x

  18. My heart aches for poor Merle!
    Fantastic video, and I love the artwork & the talented backup singers. But Merle has my heart, sigh. (Don’t tell my musician husband.)

  19. With three hits on record when are we going to see the album??

  20. wow – that was terrific. the talent in your family is awe-inspiring – – we expect BIG things from those two boys of yours…..I wonder what and when their web debut will be!

  22. I think I went to school with the “new” boyfriend . . . lots of tie-dye and hemp of all sorts at that school. Too funny for words!

  23. At least someone in the Shayne fambly now has her some Internet!
    I am hummin’ that song and thinking of Al Gore…

  24. Delightful! Original! Clever! Funny!

  25. I have visions of #1, #2 plastic bottles & post-consumer recycled cardboard in my head. WOWIE-Neat-O Ann! I love it! VG

  26. Fabulous!!!

  27. I love “dreams” rhyming with “Prius” – I think it only works with Merle’s dreamy lightly-southern twang.
    Fantastico!

  28. My 11-year-old rushed to put Merle on his ipod. We both love Al Gore’s funny eye expressions. This was a hoot.

  29. Awesome!

  30. Great animation! What fun! When does the tour begin for Merle and the Boys?!
    Sandy
    PS – Y’all really slimmed down Al Gore! He should thank you profusely!

  31. We all enjoyed the song and animation so much! My boys and husband laughed just as much as I did. Thanks so much – it’s always good to share a chuckle.
