  • Lyrics
  • Nail told Roughstock why he chose to cut this Brent Cobb, Adam Hood and Jason Saenz penned honky-tonk shuffle for The Sound of a Million Dreams. "I wanted a song that was right out of a honky-tonk. 'Grandpa's Farm' is funky and raw, and it comes from a live, intense place. I think it sounds like a Black Crowes song, or like 'Honky Tonk Women' by the Stones. People say I have a soulful quality to my voice, and I wanted the rawness of 'Grandpa's Farm' to balance that out."
