Ain't Startin' Tonight

Album: I Love This Life (2015)
  • LoCash's Preston Brust penned this tune with Nashville songsmiths Michael Tyler and Jaron Boyer. "We just wanted a song that had a little bit of attitude," Brust told The Boot. "We were talking that day about how the girls get to sing songs to guys and kind of say, 'Hey, before he cheats, beat his car up a little bit this time around.' So we were like, 'I ain't never cried a tear in my beer in my whole life, and I'm not starting tonight over you.' We were like, it feels good."

    "We don't have a song like that, with guys with attitude," he added. "So we ran with it. The song was on hold for a couple of different artists, and someone was going to make it their lead single, and [Sr. VP of Promotion] Gator [Michaels] called me and said, 'Why have I not heard this song?' I said 'Well, it's on hold. It's kind off limits.' He said, 'Not anymore. It's our song. Go get it.'"
