Country and Novelty.

The word "novelty" needs to stop being used so liberally on this site. Nobody has ever used it in a way that's accurate and didn't make themselves look like an historically ignorant fool.

He did write and perform some comical or nonsensical songs, performed principally for their comical effect. Humorous songs, or those containing humorous elements, not necessarily novelty songs.

By that definition several Beatles and Zappa songs would be considered novelty songs. You would also be including several country and folk artist from the 70's such as Jerry Reed, Ray Stevens, David Allan Coe, Jimmy Buffet, Arlo Guthrie and Steve Goodman.
