What is a Tennessee rider?
Contrary to what the title suggests, Tennessee Riders are not necessarily associated with the state of Tennessee, nor are they involved in equine practices. However, according to folklore, and as captured in the cult blooze-core song "Tennessee Rider," Tennessee Riders usually have the following characteristics in common:
Two letter Ts in their names
A penchant for spending money
An affinity for dancing, especially when feeling down
A cult hero status among latch key children
In addition, Tennessee Riders tend to not be able to stand still. They've just got to dance.
