God Bless a Country Girl

Album: Outlaw in Me (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • The Lacs are a country-rap duo comprising Clay "Uncle Snap" Sharpe and Brian "Rooster" King. Their name is short for "Loud Ass Crackers."

    "Our music is not one dimensional," says Sharpe. "We take the good out of rock, the good out of country and the good out of rap and mix them together and create something different. We build from scratch."
  • The song, which the guys both had a hand in co-writing, pays tribute to country girls. "Country girls are the best," said Sharpe. "These are the kind of girls we grew up with, and we're happy to honor them in this song."

    "This is a song that brings the country out in every girl," added King, "no matter where she lives."
