Scotty McCreery & Dry County All Dressed Up For Halloween

Here is some information for those of us (me) that had no idea who Spinal Tap was!

The band is fictional and is portrayed by actors. The movie This Is Spinal tap is a cult classic so the actors sometimes actually performed on TV shows in character as the band. It was all still a spoof though making fun of over the top rock and metal bands. It may have been based on a particular band, but I'm not sure.

Scotty's costume was the band member called David St. Hubbins played by Michael McKean. Here's a then and now article about the characters.

The article says the movie "is a tour-bus staple for musicians of all genres, and many say the film’s look at the often ridiculous life of a traveling musician borders on uncomfortable." So it's easy to see why Scotty and Dry County would like it. wink.gif
