Songfacts®:

  • The title track of Did it for the Party is a reflection of who Big Kenny and John Rich really are.

    "Big Kenny wrote 'Did It for the Party" and played it for me on the back of our bus one night when we were out on tour," John Rich told ABC Radio. "I got through listening to it and I said, 'Well buddy, if that ain't the truth! I mean, you nailed that one.'"

    "And he said, 'Yeah man, I was just thinking, the reason we're a duo instead of being solo artists is because we have more fun together making music.'"
