Guys and Girls

Album: About to Get Real (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • Easton Corbin originally thought he had finished his About to Get Real album at some point in 2014. However, this Zach Crowell, Jaren Johnston and Cary Barlowe penned cut was one of three songs added to the project late in the process, after he and his producer Carson Chamberlain went back in to record a few more songs. "We felt like so much time has passed, we should go out and beat the bushes, for, I guess you'd say for lack of better terms, and see if there were any other songs out there that were as good or better, because these writers are writing every day great songs, and we did," Corbin said. "And we came across three songs called 'Guys and Girls,' 'Diggin' on You' and 'Yup.' I feel like these three songs really complete this record."

    "So, we took off three existing songs we had cut and replaced them with these three songs," he added. "I feel like that when you have a body of work it's almost like putting a puzzle together, especially sequencing and the body of work as a whole. And I feel like that all these songs together as a whole really complement each other."
