Let Me See Ya Girl

Album: Cole Swindell (2014)
Charted: 59

Songfacts®:

  • This song finds Cole Swindell singing about a guy trying to impress an attractive girl at the club. Swindell penned the song with Luke Bryan's guitarist Michael Carter and Jody Stevens, who is the son of songwriter and producer Jeff Stevens, and formerly one-half of the duo Fast Ryde. Their most well-known song was a booty jam called "That Thang," which reached the Top 40 of the country chart.
  • When this moved 11-9 on the country chart, Cole Swindell became the first solo male artist to pull four Hot Country Songs Top 10s from a debut country album, since Darius Rucker did so from his 2008 set, Learn to Live.
  • Cole Swindell admitted to Radio.com that the song is, "not breaking ground, lyrically." He added: "It's just wanting to get to know a girl outside a club. It's not a 'Ain't Worth the Whiskey' or 'The Back Roads and the Back Row' that hits you here [in the heart], it just makes you dance and move and have fun, and you need those songs in your set to make sure that everyone gets their money's worth."
