God Help My Man

Album: Album Number Two (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • This song was written by Rory Feek, who is the male half of the husband and wife duo Joey + Rory, along with Jamie Teachenor and Paul Overstreet. Rory explained: "This is a fun one. Jamie, Paul and I wrote this long before Cheater (their 2008 song "Cheater, Cheater") ever came out or became a hit, but after the success of our last happily-married-couple-singing-about-cheating song, we felt like we had to at least record one more on this new record. Not sure what my bride would do if she caught her man doing her wrong, but let's just say she's got a fine selection of frying pans in the kitchen, just in case!

    Joey added: "This is so fun to sing because of the 'Cheater Cheater' song that launched us. Coming off a song like that on our first album, we wanted to make sure we included another one on this record that really embraces that strong-woman side of me as well. When we play this one out live women just go crazy! It really speaks to them in a fun way!" (Check out our Joey + Rory interview.)
