  • Lyrics
  • A randy Kane Brown pays tribute on this bubbly bop to his toned-legged lover.

    Oh, my baby's made for short skirt weather
    Yeah, she make me wish summer would just go on forever
    From them yellow polka dots, from blue jeans and leather
    Oh, my baby's made for short skirt weather


    Brown is also celebrating the summer season when girls wear the scanty clothing that make "country boys hearts explode."
  • Kane Brown wrote this with Chase McGill and Will Weatherly. The same trio also penned Experiment's lead single "Lose It." The singer admitted to ABC Radio that when one of the other writers announced they wanted to write a song called "Short Skirt Weather," he wasn't sure the song's title was for him.

    "At first, I didn't like it," Brown said. "So we just started messing around and we just had fun with it. We had a bunch of different things that we were saying in there that's now behind-the-scenes jokes. And it was just a fun song to write."
  • Sonically this dates back to Brown's childhood. "I wanted it to sound kind of '90s country," he explained. "The first song I ever knew was 'I Like It, I Love It' by Tim McGraw, and that was the feel I was going for. And Dan Huff, the producer, played on that song, so he already knew how it sounded, and to me he killed it."
