How to use "Honkytonk" in context?

The blues had a seminal influence on American songwriters in the 1920s and 1930s, and one of the most important was Arthur " Big Boy" Crudup. Influenced by the raw power and rawness of the blues, Crudup crafted a unique and powerful style of his own that came to be known as "honky tonk."

Crudup's Honky Tonk style is characterized by its powerful, down-home beat and expressive lyricism. He often wrote about the harsh realities of life in rural America, and his songs were often filled with quick lines and raw, emotional energy.
