Gonna Write Me A Country Song[VIDEO]

My Mom and Dad have told me for years; if I want to make it in the music business, I should get into
'western' music.

I'm not sure if they're aware how much country music has changed, but I was thinking, it can't hurt.

Right ? It is probably the largest segment of the purchasing public's music consumption.

Now I'm a fan of a lot of country artists. Hunter Hayes, Lady Antebellum, David Nail, Trace Adkins and others pop into my mind. And there are a host of country songs that  really speak to me personally and as a writer.

Now, I'm always willing to step outside my comfort zone and give it a try, especially if the promise of the almighty dollar sits at the end of that red dirt road.

So girl, why don't ya hop into the front seat of my truck, in your white tank top and cut off jeans and we'll take a little trip down to the river, with a cane pole, and I'll see if I can't find the words to write a country song.

I'll bring a cheap bottle of wine, some Southern Comfort, or moonshine, and we can howl at the moon 'til we get to that county line. Then I can pick my gitar and sang you a song about Bo 'n Red and Skoal. And how you smell sweet as honeysuckle, next to a Georgia Pine. 

Dont' worry your pretty little head, cause your man is coming down to the farm and mama's got grandaddy's gun, so we all know there's a song a comin', God willing and the creek don't rise.

Yeah, I think I'm gong to try and write a country song. I just don't know where to start.
