Front Porch Junkies [Remix]

Album: It Goes Like This (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • Rhett penned this redneck tune with the Warren Brothers, Mark Irwin and Josh Kear. He recalled: "The Warren Brothers had started this song with a few guys and then they brought it to me. It turned into a five-way co-write, which was funny because this song reflects how we were acting in the writing room."
  • Rhett explained that a Front Porch Junkie is, "your average good ole boy or girl who would rather sit on their front porch and hang out rather than getting dressed up and going out in town."
