Top 10 Haunted “Hillbilly” Halloween Tunes

G’day y’all,

Happy Halloween! I’m looking forward to sharing some music history with you on Acousticult. For my first write-up I thought I’d list some of my favourite “Hillbilly” Halloween songs to get you in the mood.

Since before the needle first dropped on shellac, people have been diggin’ spooky songs and this list is a fun one full of Western Swing, Honky-tonk, Hillbilly and Ragtime horrors. Enjoy!
