Arguably one of their biggest, most-successful, and fan favorite songs to-date, this Southern rock and tribute to small town life has become a staple in Montgomery Gentry‘s repertoire – and the music video is only a further testament to that!

Released in June 2015, the album struck the charts high and peaked in the Top 20 on Billboard’s US Country chart, and nailing No. 6 on the US Indie chart.  The album is full of great songs and critics have raved about the tracks saying that the songs are “packed with attitude and personality.”

Michael McCall calls out their dedication in his review of their album, saying “they stay focused on small towns, religion, patriotism, and partying on dirt roads.”

A true American anthem – this single really embodies the band as a whole. Troy Gentry and Eddie Montgomery reveal the song’s purpose and how it stays true to them.

“It’s what you might expect to hear out of Montgomery Gentry. It’s a song about American society and making ends meet. It’s about being patriotic and showing your faith and the love of family. It’s one of those blue-collar songs that we’ve been known for doing for so long.”

Eddie Montgomery echoes that sentiment, saying “We’re still who we are at the roots. I reckon, you let it branch out a little bit and you learn. You live and learn, so that’s what we’ve tried to do with this new record.”

“There are probably a few more introspective moments on the album, and front-to-back, this might just be our strongest record yet,” Gentry added.
