Bad Relationships Mean Trashy Future For Johnny Knoxville’s Cousin

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Johnny Knoxville’s cousin is getting sweet revenge for a relationship gone sour.

For 29 years, Roger Alan Wade has been writing country songs for folks like Waylon Jennings, Hank Williams, Jr., and Johnny Cash but his own singing career didn’t take off until his own love life went haywire.

Wade – cousin of the Jackass star – says he spent six months pining over the woman by drinking and writing songs with titles like “Butt Ugly Slut” and “She’s Gone Back To Whorin’.”

It wasn’t pretty but Knoxville was so impressed by Wade’s boozy ballads that he started a record company just to release Wade’s first album, All Likkered Up.

Wade says writing lyrics like, You can burn the bacon, just don’t scorch the sausage has taught him to “...be more honest when writing straight songs.”

Although things are better for Wade, he is still mining tunes from his misery such as his latest, “I’m Getting Hammered Cause She’s Getting Nailed.”
