  • This is a humorous yarn about the difference between the sexes. Brad Paisley explained to Great American Country: "I just wanted to capture this struggle a little bit between men and women in a playful way, which is 'Why don't you get a little cosmopolitan here and feminize up for me just a bit?' [laughs] We're fighting that every step of the way, some of us guys, and ironically in talking to the radio guys, they say the majority of the calls for it come from women, and I think the same thing happened with 'I'm Gonna Miss Her.' These women want their men to hear it, and by golly, that is the best way to get a man to hear something is to play it for their significant other. They're gonna be forced to listen to it. It's got that nudge-your-partner-with-your-elbow factor to it."

  • Gabe Itch from WhywouldisharemylocationThis is most sexist toxic masculinity-filled peice of garbage. HE USED THE FACT THAT HES A GUY TO SHAME A WOMAN FOR NOT WANTING HIM TO TOUCH HER! Not to mention how he called feminine men “sissies” and proceeded to make fun of them for not obeying gender roles! Why anyone think so this is okay I don’t understand.
  • Dave from Cullman, AlThis song isn't exactly "me" (at 63 I'm a little too old to identify), but it makes me smile every time I hear it. Yes, my eyebrows are unplucked, and yes, there sometimes is a gun in my truck.
  • Brian from Vancouver, Canadaperfect song
  • Julius Von Brunk from Lancaster, PaThis isn't the worst song ever... It is the worst THING ever created. If I had the power, I'd erase every memory of this song from existance.
  • Aron from Brownsville, TxAWESOME SONG! =]
