Days Like These

Album: My Kinda Party (2010)
  • This Neil Thrasher, Wendell Mobley and Busbee penned song finds the protagonist driving around, listening to the radio. Aldean explained to CMT: "The song is just talking about those days when everything is going right and you don't really want it to come to an end. My favorite line is, 'Rest your feet upon the dash/Leave your toe prints on the glass.' Those visual things, even something that simple, will grab me and make me want to listen to the rest of the song. I ended up falling in love with the song."
  • The song came in at the end of the recording sessions for My Kinda Party. Said Aldean to CMT: "We were looking for some more tempo stuff, and that song came in. To be honest with you, man, when I heard that song, it almost had like a Keith Urban vibe. I don't really know what you call it, but I call it kind of like a 'peppy' song. We've never done a lot of that stuff, but I really liked the song and the melody."
