Haywire

Songfacts®:

  • This is the title track of Country music singer-songwriter Josh Turner's fourth album. He explained to The 9513, "it's a song about this country girl that's making me go haywire, you know, because she's hot."
  • Turner told The 9513 why he named the album after this song: "Judging from the titles of the songs on the record and getting away from the subject matter of the song, 'Haywire' felt pretty relevant as to the world right now and my life, too. Last year I was making this record, I had my second child born in June, I was out on the road, I moved into a house and have been building a log cabin for me to write in. It was kinda haywire really. It kinda spoke to my life and also to what was happening in the world."
