After Party

Album: Where It's At (2014)
  • Growing up in the small town Tullahoma, Tennessee, Lynch lived the kind of rural life celebrated by country music and this song reflects those roots. "'After Party' is me," he said. "It's me and my crew back home. We lived for the weekends and Friday night football games. We lived for going out to Lazy Branch Road. We'd go cruising there and then we'd get to the boat ramp where we'd build a fire and drink beer that we snuck away from somebody's house or bought with a fake ID. We'd play music and try to meet some new girls from the next county over."
