"What's in a name?"
That's what Shaun Morgan thinks of song titles, and it's why this track is simply called "Country Song" (a phrase not mentioned in the lyrics) instead of something more descriptive. At least the title has some bearing on the song - Seether's 2005 track "Burrito
" has nothing to do with Mexican food, and was named after watching a scene in Ozzy Osbourne's reality TV show.
Seether's record label wanted a different name for this song, but the band wasn't willing to acquiesce. "We actually said, No, we want to keep it 'Country Song' because that's what we've gotten used to calling it and that's what we're going to keep calling it," Morgan told us in 2013
. "It just doesn't feel right changing the name after we'd had this song for 8 months before the album came out. That's like changing your kid's name when he becomes a teenager. That's the name, it's ridiculous. So we just stuck with our guns. And the band that in 2004 didn't have any say in their career certainly isn't the same in 2012, so we had the ability to keep that the way we wanted it to be."
