Hello forum,

I got confused with fiddle-laced when I ran across the sentence 'billboard applauded the song saying it "pushes all the buttons that should make it a natural for today's young country audience" and calling it "a rollicking, fiddle-laced number that should become a weekend anthem".'

I did an online search, unfortunately not an explanation entry could be found for fiddle-laced. And from my dictionary, it says fiddle means: 1, a violin; 2, a disonest way of getting money and 3, something to be difficult to do and involve complicated movements of your hands.

Please help me out of it.

    "To lace" means to add something to something else as "The wine was laced with drugs." So "fiddle-laced" means simply that the fiddle was given substantial presence in the recording.
