Today on radio, you may have heard us discuss the phenomenon of the Moron Brothers. The Moron Brothers are a Bluegrass duo out of Kentucky that wear overalls and do some pickin’ and a grinnin’, while singing comical songs.

We played some of their music and after a little research, it was obvious that these are alter egos of two Kentucky citizens. But how much of their life is real and how much is an act?
