BIOGRAPHY

Otis Lee Crenshaw

‘My Old Man’s name was Jack Daniels Crenshaw. No surprise what he liked to drink. As a very small child I remember teething – cryin’ out savagely for relief. Eventually he would appear over my crib and rub Jack Daniels on his gums until he fell asleep…’

So writes Otis Lee Crenshaw in I Blame Society, the first of his memoirs to be published. Married six times, all to women named Brenda, Crenshaw’s bourbon-fuelled odyssey takes him from the high mountains of East Tennessee to the bottom of the music charts. A man not above faking his own death to sell more records. This is his not quite true story of romance, recidivism, country music, and an unshakeable belief in Marriage at First Sight.

‘If you want to understand America, forget Michael Moore, George W. Bush or the Simpsons – get acquainted with Otis Lee Crenshaw, the sublime creation of Rich Hall, one of the funniest, smartest and most acute American wits alive’ – Stephen Fry

‘Next to Otis, all other comics seem one-dimensional’ – The Observer

‘We fans of musical comedy have a special place in our hearts for Otis Lee Crenshaw, Rich Hall’s country music-singing jailbird alter ego. Crenshaw’s comic songs about the trailer park and the penitentiary can be as poignant as they are funny, and as musically satisfying as they are lyrically adroit’ – The Guardian
