‘Family Feud’ brings probate abuse to mainstream music

On their Hell on Heels debut album,  a new group called the Pistol Annies (Miranda Lambert, Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Pressley) has a song entitled Family Feud.

Heads up legal industry!  Country music has a long legacy of capturing American life stories.  When mainstream music picks up grave robbing and estate looting as one of those life stories – just a thought – but maybe the estate abuse issue has “arrived.”

“Shining light on the dark side of estate management” was our mission upon starting Estate of Denial® five years ago.  While real reform of the culture surrounding probate systems will take time, any short-term opportunity to help more people more easily identify property poaching via probate (wills, trusts, guardianships and powers of attorney) is welcomed.  Family Feud delivers just that message.

Congratulations Pistol Annies on a great sounding album!

 

Fine china stacked by the kitchen sink
Aunt Tammy’s in there claiming all the diamond rings
Uncle Bob’s holding up the TV set
The only thing they are grieving over
Is what they ain’t gonna get
She’s only been in the ground a day or two
I’m glad Mama ain’t around to watch this family feud

Great Granddaddy’s shotgun started it all
She wasn’t even cold
Before they ripped it off the wall
Wanda’s fighting Angie over antique quilts
Nobody even waited for the reading of the will
If Daddy was here he’d beat us black and blue
I’m glad Mama ain’t around to watch this family feud

I’m watching it all go down in shame
Wish the whole house would go up in flames
Who gives a damn about a cedar chest
When we just laid her soul to rest
She’s only been in the ground a day or two
I’m glad Mama ain’t around to watch this family feud

She’s probably rolling over in her grave
‘Cause the good lord giveth and the family taketh away
