Songfacts®:

  • De La Soul pioneered skits in hip-hop with their 1989 3 Feet High and Rising album. Since then, various rap acts have used comedic sketches both to introduce their records and as interludes between songs.

    For Can't Say I Ain't Country, the Florida Georgia Line duo teamed with a character named Brother Jervel for four comedic skits which are interspersed between the disc's tracks. "We just thought it would be a cool little ode to some of the old hip-hop records back in the day," FGL's Brian Kelley explained to The Boot. "It hadn't really been done in a long time, so we thought it would be a cool thing to do, and a cool way to show our personality."
  • Who is Brother Jervel? It turns out he's the alter ego of a guy named Chris from Brentwood, Tennessee who also goes by the name of Nugget. Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley know him from way back - the FGL pair thought including him would be a fun way to inject their own lighthearted comedy into the project and would give their buddy a platform to bring his act to a wider audience.
