Night of the living similes

Not to be rude, Nation's Newspaper of Record, but on the off chance this meant anything, what would it actually mean?

With a baritone voice that was as elastic as a steel-guitar string, he found vulnerability and doubt behind the cheerful drive of honky-tonk and brought suspense to every syllable, merging bluesy slides with the tight, quivering ornaments of Appalachian singing.
