After an embarrassing night at the movies with Marge, Homer gets the chance to manage an aspiring country music singer, Lurleen Lumpkin, but has to fight off her seductive charms and his own feelings for her to stay true to Marge[[note]]This is one of the very few episodes penned by show creator, Matt Groening without Sam Simon and/or James L. Brooks or any of the original writers as co-writers[[/note]].

!!This episode contains examples of:
* BarBrawl
-->'''Man 1''': Hey you! Let's fight!
-->'''Man 2''': Them's fightin' words!
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: Lurleen falls in love with Homer because he is the first man in her life who treats her with respect and genuinely cares for her.
* ClingyJealousGirl: Marge the entire episode. Luckily for her Homer didn't feel the same about Lurleen.
* CountryMusic: Lurleen Lumpkin is a country musician.
* DeathGlare: Marge gives a murderous one towards Lurleen during the recording of the single. Towards the end, when Lurleen sings "I've finally bagged me a Homer", Marge goes completely furious with hatred, and starts grinding her teeth.
* IntercourseWithYou: Lurleen's song "Bunk With Me Tonight", which she wrote specifically to seuce Homer. He doesn't get it.
* {{Jerkass}}: Marge, although her paranoia is understandable, she's very untrusting towards Homer and constantly nags and insults him throughout the episode until [[ItsAllAboutMe she]] gets what she wants. She refuses to listen to him, forces him to stay at home with his family, gives a DeathGlare and gnarls her teeth in a live-recording out of hatred, and threatens to divorce him if he continues to see Lurleen.
* MistakenForCheating: Marge assumes Homer is having an affair with Lurleen, and refuses to listen to his pleas that he's just trying to help her. It doesn't help that Lurleen flirts with him ''in front of her'', giving Marge a reason to hate her at near-{{Yandere}} levels.
* MortonsFork: Marge speaks with Patty on the phone, and tells her that Lurleen is one for the family. If she fails, the family is broke. If she succeeds, Marge will divorce Homer.
* ObliviousToLove: Homer fails to notice that Lurleen is in love with him, even when she invites him to her trailer, and sings the highly suggestive song "[[IntercourseWithYou Bunk with me Tonight]]" for him (according to DVD commentary, everyone thought Homer was being a {{jerkass}} in this episode, but Groening explains that Homer was just trying to help Lurleen out because he liked her songs and wanted to make money for his family -- until he sees her true intentions):
-->'''Homer:''' Oh, that's hot. There isn't a man alive who wouldn't get turned on by that. ''(stands up)'' Well, goodbye!
* RunningGag: Homer keeps holding his breath when he drives pass nasty smells.
-->'''Homer:''' ''(exhales)'' Oh no! ''(inhales)''
* ShoutOut:
** The title, as well as Homer himself, refer to Colonel Parker, manager of Music/ElvisPresley.
** ''Coal Miner's Daughter'': Many of the elements of the 1980 film, starring Sissy Spacek and Tommy Lee Jones and showing Loretta Lynn's real-life rise to stardom, are present.
** ''HeeHaw'': The TV show "Ya-Hoo," with its corny, countrified characters and country music.
** The title of Lurleen's last song, "Stand By Your Manager" is a reference to Tammy Wynette's most famous single "Stand By Your Man".

* TakeThat: Homer explains to Marge about the most famous people in country music includes "the jerk in the cowboy hat" [[note]]Music/GarthBrooks?[[/note]] and "that dead lady".[[note]]Patsy Cline or Dottie West?[[/note]]
* TranquilFury: Homer quietly, but sternly drops off Marge and the kids and drive off into the night. He then quickly backs up when he realize Maggie is still inside, then drives away again.
** Marge remains silent throughout Lurleen's recording, but at the end when the song is revealed to be a love song towards Homer, Marge beings to gnarl her teeth out of fury and hatred.
* UnknownRival: Marge hates Lurleen to near-{{Yandere}} levels, and wants her out of the family's lives out of fear she'll take Homer away from them. Lurleen mostly ignores her.
* XDaysSince: The trailer park where Lurleen lives has a sign counting the days since the last tornado. The second time we see it, the number is lower.
