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!
* ClingyJealousGirl: Marge the entire episode. Luckily for her Homer didn't feel the same about Lurleen.
* CountryMusic: Lurleen Lumpkin is a country musician.
* 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 she gets what she wants.
* 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.
* 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.
