Songfacts®:

  • In this song, which was written by Alan Jackson, a "country boy" offers a girl a lift in his pick up truck.
  • Jackson's concept for the song's promo was to ask his fans to send him video ideas of what it means to be a Country Boy (or girl). He then picked ten of his favorites to include in the promo along with his performance at a classic truck graveyard near Nashville.
  • This was Jackson's third consecutive Country #1, following "Small Time Southern Man" and "Good Time" and his 25th chart-topper in total on the Hot Country Songs chart.
  • This was the fourth #1 on the Country survey containing the words "Country Boy" in its title. The previous three were John Denver's "Thank God I'm a Country Boy," Don Williams' "I'm Just A Country Boy" and Ricky Skaggs' "Country Boy."
