Very Last Country Song

Album: Love On The Inside (2008)

Songfacts®:

  • This number is a look at what would happen if nothing ever went wrong again. Jennifer Nettles commented on the duo's website: "If life stayed the way it was, if those conditions weren't in our lives, then this would literally be the last Country song."
  • This was written by Nettles and Bush together with Tim Owens, who also has a writing credit on Sugarland's 2007 hit "Settlin."
  • The impetus and inspiration behind this song came from when Owens told the duo that someone had once asked him why country music was always so sad. Owens' answer was that if bad things never happened, then what would we have to write about?
