By 2018, Rednex, most famous for their 1994 hit "Cotton Eye Joe
," had a pool of performers and would release the occasional single, typically with a bonkers video to go with it. "Manly Man" was one such entry.
The song was written by Cecilia Brändström and Janne Eriksson, with Eriksson producing. As usual, the male studio vocalist was Göran Danielsson, this time portrayed by Dagger (Anders Sandberg) in the visuals. Misty Mae (Cecilia Karlsson) did the female vocals.
Like the band itself, the song is a satire of rural American southerners, playing on the dimwitted stereotype. In this case, the guy in the song thinks he has everything a woman could ever desire, including moonshine in the freezer and a hound dog.
