Livin' My Life Like a Country Song

Songfacts®:

  • This tongue-in-cheek song takes Theory of a Deadman in a different direction. "We didn't know what to do with it if we were going to put it on the record or not," Frontman Tyler Connolly admitted during a Loudwire Nights With Full Metal Jackie interview. "But we said, 'Forget it. Let's just do it. If we're going have a song called 'Live My Life Like a Country Song,' let's just poke fun at it and go for it all the way.'"
  • Joe Don Rooney of Rascal Flatts contributed to this tune. Connolly explained: "Howard Benson, our producer, whom had just finished producing Rascal Flatts called up Joe Don and asked if he wanted to come sing and play guitar on this track, he was all over it. He was really excited. He did a way better job than we could of emulating. We can play banjo and stuff but these guys are the real deal. It turned out amazing."
