Great Idea

Album: Georgia Clay (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • Josh Kelley wrote this song with Thomas Miller and his producer Clint Lagerberg, and it appears on his debut Country album, Georgia Clay. Kelley told us: "I love that song. The song is kind of about going to your high school reunion and meeting up with the same person maybe you used to date, and then going back through all those motions. Like, 'Oh, my God, let's go back to where we experienced this, and let's do this.' It's kind of about that. Is this a great idea, or a good memory? Should we do this or not? You know. That song really goes over well live, too, man. People love it right when we start kicking into that thing." (Read the full interview with Josh Kelley.)
