Robert Abernathy Joins Forces With SMO On New Country Music Release, ‘Redneck Magic’

Robert Abernathy puts his wizard’s wand into action with his latest single, ‘Redneck Magic’. The song, which sees him joined forces with master storyteller and country rapper SMO, is a hilarious, somewhat tongue-in-cheek, innuendo-heavy, and altogether super catchy instant classic that will have you sidestepping on the dance floor in no time.

We introduced readers to Robert Abernathy at the start of this year with his ode to fishing and catching the big one, ‘Big Bass Problem‘. Now, he returns, bringing with him once more his clever songwriting, which is finely balanced against his humour and authenticity.

New single, ‘Redneck Magic’, is a pulsating thumper of a track right from the very first note. With an electrifying riff and swaggering drums and bass, Robert Abernathy tells his tale with a syncopated singing style, a story of a farm boy who gets the city girl with his winning country charm. His lyrics are clever and sassy without going too far, and when he’s joined by rapper SMO, likewise a master storyteller, the tune becomes one that will win you over without you even realising.

The music video for ‘Redneck Magic’ sees Abernathy, dressed as a magician (and looking for all the world like a country style Dr Demento in his top hat and blazer), come into a country bar, and ask for a drink of the bartender, who just happens to be SMO. Casting a spell over everyone, there’s a series of comedic and romantic happenings, catching the small-town crowd unawares. What had previously been a slow night suddenly becomes a night to remember. Settle in for some country charm, with Robert Abernathy, and watch the music video for ‘Redneck Magic’ below.
