All the electrics are me. I don't know those guys, though (heard they're super cool, though). All tones are Lentz stuff into a Kemper. Think a Rockett Led Boots was in there, too. It's written down somewhere. Anyway, it's that heavy country sound that's so en vogue right now. Solo at 2:00, for what that's worth.

Say what you will about how new country isn't really "country", but from an arranging standpoint, heavy guitars and banjos go together really really well.

I like it! Lyrics are country to the bone(pun intended) but I like the overdriven guitar. Everyone trashes the direction country music has taken but if it's got rockin guitar in it, I'll take it.
Good job!

Modern country music has really been missing a song like this. We need country songs about being country. Very meta.

Not my style of country, but it did sound very well arranged and put together, and the guitar playing was great.

Obligatory pickup truck and ice cold beer in the first nine words. I paused it after that, couldn't wait for the red sun dress or gettin' mud on the tires, but was pretty sure it was coming.

A shame a talented musician has to write that to be listened to in country music. You have a great guitar driven sound and nice voice.

You're doing everything right to be on country radio.

Great playing, Mark! The tones are sick!

As far as the song itself….let's say I am sick of the "I'm more country than you" constant theme for male artists. It has to stop soon.

Oh, it's not me singing, Gibson3798. I was just hired to play the electric stuff. Definitely not my song.

The playing was great, love the tone. But the song was total dreck. Sorry.
