Right

Album: Pain Management (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • Sparxxx teamed up with the Nashville artist Rodney Atkins for this song about the "real-life troubles of getting it right." Bubba said: "It was important that Rodney and I collaborated on a song with a strong message we both believe in, which is the case with 'Right.' And just like it relates to the both of us, I think it will relate to each listener in some way. We all have some aspect of our life we want to get 'right.'"

    "Additionally, Rodney and I stayed true to who we are as people and artists," Bubba continued. "He's not rapping and I'm not singing. Not to mention, Rodney is one of the most down to earth, genuine people I've ever had the privilege of working with."
  • The pair have known each other for a long time. "Bubba and I first met in 2006 in North Carolina and we started talking about working together then,"Atkins said. "When he called me with this song, it just made sense. Music, no matter the genre, is a universal language and this song says something worthwhile."
