Damn Good Friends

Album: Suffer in Peace (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • This song is a duet with Jason Aldean. Farr served as the opening act on Aldean's 2015 Burn It Down Tour.
  • Farr explained the song's meaning to Millertime Music Spot: "The main gist of the song is that you have a couple hundred buddies but only a few damn good friends," he said. "It's an edgier take on [Tracy Lawrence's] 'Find Out Who Your Friends Are.'"
  • This was written by Brent Anderson, Chris DuBois and Neil Medley Farr told The Boot why he got Aldean involved: "I just honestly heard the song and cut it because I just loved the song," he explained. "And then the more I started listening to it, I'm like, 'You know, this would be great to do with Jason,' because I've become really close with him, become good friends with him over the past year, and we're touring with him again this year, and we've hung out a lot together, and I'm friends with his family and was just at his wedding, so we're very close. And I think you can tell in the song, you can see some real truth in the lyrics and how we're singing it, that we are good friends, and we've got each other's backs."
