Feel That Again

Album: Night Train (2012)

Songfacts®:

  • This Vicky McGehee, Neil Thrasher and Wendell Mobley penned song has a '70s rock sound. However, Aldean told Billboard magazine that wasn't always the case. "The biggest thing with songs like that is being able to rock those songs up a bit," he said. "You may hear a demo that kind of sits there, and you can spice them up just by the tones of the guitars, the production of it, and not being scared or thinking, 'we need a fiddle on this thing 'cause this is country music.' I don't think there's a fiddle on the whole record, honestly. It's not because I don't like fiddle, but I would rather hear a raunchy guitar than somebody sawin' on a fiddle, that's just the way it is. I think people are scared a lot of times to go in and rock up a song a little bit, make it more aggressive, and that's something we've always done. It gives songs a whole new sound."
