Who's Your Farmer

Album: Everybody (2017)


  • Chris Janson penned this banjo-driven shout out to farmers with Mitch Oglesby and Buddy Owens. He told Genius: "I wrote the song over the phone at 1am. Mitch Oglesby brought me the title, and I loved it from the start."

    Janson added: "I picked up the phone and started singing random true story thoughts, and it came together in 15 minutes."
  • Janson uses farming metaphors to describe the way he will go to the ends of the earth to care for his lady.

    Who's your John Deere, who's your cold beer
    Who's the arms around you on a four-wheeler flyin' through a hayfield
    Who's your crooked smile in a T-shirt tan
    Home grown southern charmer
    Who's your farmer.

    Janson said: "I love farming, the lifestyle, and have upmost respect for the farming community. The farming lifestyle, along with my hot wife, inspired this one."
