"Diane" is Cam's reply to Dolly Parton's "Jolene":

 

In "Jolene," a wife confronts her husband's mistress.  In "Diane," the mistress addresses the wife:

 

"You can blame me if it helps
That's what a good wife would do
But you're only cheating yourself
Choosing him over the truth"

Rude (Magic)

(a boyfriend asks girl's father for permission to marry)

 

"Can I have your daughter for the rest of my life? Say yes, say yes
'Cause I need to know
You say I'll never get your blessing till the day I die
Tough luck my friend but the answer is no!"

 

father's reply: 

Rude (A Dad's Response) (Benji and Jenna Cowart)

 

"You say you want my darling for the rest of your life
Well you got to make more than burgers and fries
Get out of your moma's basement boy
And get you a life
Son you are 28
Don't you think it's time"

Wild Side of Life (Hank Thompson)

 

"I didn't know God made Honky Tonk angels
I might have known you'd never make a wife
You gave up the only one that ever loved you
And went back to the wild side of life"

 

answered by:

It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels (Kitty Wells)

 

"It wasn't God who made honky tonk angels
As you said in the words of your song
Too many times married men think they're still single
And that's caused many a good girl to go wrong"
