Album: Songs About Me (2005)
Charted: 59

Songfacts®:

  • This song reflects the problems of discrimination that country music listeners face. In the song, Adkins has his guitar and somebody asks him what he does. He says he sings country music mixed with some rock and blues. The guy says he's never been crazy about that hillbilly stuff. Later, Trace has the guy attend a country music concert. He says that he'll give it a try but he doubts it'll change his opinion. He realizes that night that the songs relate to him as well. >>
