  • Lyrics
  • This mid-tempo love song was penned by Cole Swindell with Brandon Kinney and Jeremy Stover. It finds the singer driving his truck with his girl beside him and the radio on.

    Keep turning it up and turning me on
    You're a rockstar girl and I'm singing along
    It's like you know what you're doing to me
    Every time you press play
    Yeah, you got me fallen in love my little Chevrolet DJ

    Swindell's girl is operating the radio and the "little Chevrolet DJ" is turning him on.
  • The song was included on Swindell's Down Home Sessions III EP thanks to a special request from a loyal supporter. "There's [one song] in particular called "Chevrolet DJ" that some fan found on YouTube a couple years ago, and it's been blowing up ever since," the singer noted. "It's never been on an album. So I said, 'Hey, why don't we go back and take some of these songs that were written a while back, and since it's for the fans, they picked it; that's their pick.'"
  • Louis Chevrolet and ousted General Motors founder William C. Durant started the Chevrolet Motor Car Company on November 3, 1911. Other songs featuring a Chevy include:
