    Cledus T. Judd

    Cledus T. Judd

    Country music's answer to Weird Al Yankovic, Cledus T. Judd had a similar approach to song parody, recording backing tracks that were as similar as possible to the original versions. Like Yankovic, he also recorded some original material, but parodies of recent country hits were his bread and butter; also like Yankovic, a Judd parody came to be regarded as a badge of honor by many of the artists he reworked. Judd's albums weren't blockbusters, but they sold consistently enough to earn him a major-label contract with Sony's revived Monument imprint. His 2000 major-label debut, Just Another Day in Parodies, skewered material by the Dixie Chicks, Brad Paisley, Kenny Chesney, Toby Keith, and even Kid Rock. The follow-up, 2002's Cledus Envy, offered parodies of Faith Hill and Billy Gilman as well as O Brother, Where Art Thou?'s "Man of Constant Sorrow." Later that year, Judd issued his first holiday album, Cledus Navidad. He returned in 2003 with the mini-album Six Pack of Judd. In 2004 he moved to the Koch label and released Bipolar & Proud.

    I have no idea who this person is but he really doesn't look like he needs to lose weight. I guess if he says he does, then more power to him -- but I'd hate to have him on my team, because he'd max out at 10 pounds.

    I have no clue who this guy is. I wonder if he's related to Naomi and Wynona Judd.

    And I've NEVER heard the name "Cledus" before.

    Cledus? Ouch.

    He doesn't look overweight to me. He may just be in it for publicity. I know, crazy idea.

    That's got to be it, because, like you all, I've never heard of the guy. I'm not sure how he passed muster for the "Celebrity" part of Celebrity Fit Club. But, if he's funny, that'll be good for the show.

    He doesn't even look the same. This looks more like an after pic.

    I don't know who he is either, but after listening to his story I am rooting for him.

    Cletus scares me, I think I am looking at a male anoxeric. He has an eating disorder and needs to deal with it.
