No Truck, No Boat, No Girl

Album: It's All Good (2011)

  • Lyrics
  • Nichols told The Boot that he can easily relate to this Adam Wright and Jay Knowles penned song: "I've only owned a boat once," he said, "but the concept of losing the girl and the truck and everything else you care about in one day - yep, that's happened to me before!"
  • The cut is one for the guys and not everyone in Nichols' family likes it. Said the singer to The Boot: "My wife hates that song, but I love it! She's more into love songs, and she's not into that kind of 'Aw, crap, I did it again: I lost my girl and my truck,' and that old cliché, country kind of stuff. She just thinks that's depressing, but I think it's funny!"
