  • Dylan Scott was born and raised in Bastrop, a very small town in Northeast Louisiana. Here, he paints the picture of small-town living, which the young Scott grew up loving.

    We ain't got a lot but we sure do a lot
    With the little bit that we got

  • Dylan Scott wrote the song with:

    Frequent collaborator Matt Alderman. He also co-penned the similarly themed "My Town" for Scott's eponymous debut album.
