Album: Suffer in Peace (2015)
  • Tyler Farr recorded this Chris Tompkins, Craig Wiseman, Rodney Clawson banjo-laden song for his Suffer In Peace album. Farr told The Boot why he decided to record the track. "It's not usually your normal uptempo [song], what's going on in country right now. I'm not huge on the sing-song-y same old thing;" he said, "this was kind of a rural country anthem - a summer song - and it's very rural."

    "I come from a town of 900 in Missouri, and just all of the pictures of things it painted in my head reminded me of where I grew up," Farr added. "I could picture being at a field party, and somebody blaring and busting out one of their speakers playing the song."
  • Farr opened his set with this song when he served as the opening act on Jason Aldean's 2015 Burn It Down Tour. He said: "People have really grown to like it; it makes them want to move. Some song are meant to make people shed a tear or laugh, cry or dance, and that's a song that's made to get people up and dance."
