Luke Bryan, 'Country Girl (Shake It for Me)' -- Story Behind the Lyrics
luke-bryan-200-112411Luke Bryan is soaring up the charts with his latest single, 'Country Girl (Shake It for Me).' The tune, admittedly a sharp deviation from his previous hits, including 'Rain Is a Good Thing' and 'Someone Else Calling You Baby,' is not only a strong contender to be the Georgia native's third No. 1 in a row, but has also garnered him an entirely new fan base, thanks to its infusion of rock and rap -- and a sexy performance on the CMT Awards that made him the most-searched term on Google following the awards ceremony. Luke sat down with The Boot to explain the inspiration behind this career-changing song.

Me and my co-writer, Dallas Davidson, often times we'll sit in a songwriting room and we'll pull up fun rap and dance songs. I've been in so many honky tonks where right when I get off stage, they put on rap music and the dance floor fills up. I'll never forget, I played a private party one time, and it was a pool party for some young kids who had some money. Their parents wanted Luke Bryan to surprise them, and the time I got done playing, they put on dance music and rap and the pool party was just rocking! I was like, "I've gotta try to write some music that maybe some kids like that will want to rock at their pool party or play at a honky tonk." I told that to Dallas, and we went on that. We didn't have a title. If you had told us the title, 'Country Girl Shake it For Me,' we'd have said that's too cheesy.

Montgomery Gentry, ‘Where I Come From’ – Lyrics Uncovered

mont-gentMontgomery Gentry have released their latest single and first new tune from their newly-signed record deal on Average Joe’s Entertainment. ‘Where I Come From’ was penned by the Peach Pickers’ own Dallas Davidson and songwriter-producer Rodney Clawson. The foot-stomper is reminiscent to some of Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry’s earlier singles, so it should be a huge hit with their loyal fans.

“Rodney’s from Texas, and I’m from Georgia,” Davidson tells Taste of Country of the song’s beginnings. “He used to farm, I used to farm. We just went dead right there.”

Don’t you dare go runnin’ down the little town where I grew up / And I won’t cuss your city lights,” they wrote in the song’s opening verse.

“It’s a rockin’ song, but nothing offensive,” Davidson points out of the lyrics.
