Alan Jackson – Country Boy
“Country Boy” is a song written recorded, and composed by American country musician Alan Jackson. It’s the third track from the album Good Time, released in September of 2008. On January 9, 2009 “Country Boy” became his twenty-fifth Number One hit on the Billboard singles chart for the country genre in addition to being the third consecutive Number One from the album. The track is moderately upbeat, accompanied by electric guitar.
The male narrator speaks to a female and invites her to get in his four-wheel-drive vehicle, telling her you can go wherever she’d like, since it is his “country boy”. It is considered to be one of the earliest examples of bro-country music. In the latter part of September in 2008, Jackson announced his YouTube channel to host an event for music videos titled “Country Boy”. The YouTubers or viewers were asked to create an uncomplicated video of no more than five minutes of driving with a female.
The contest closed on October 6 in 2008, which was won with Clay Ashley, Dan Hair, and Mark Trotter of Sioux City, Iowa. Before the release of the official video the television network CMT broadcast the live music video, which included Jackson singing the song along alongside Brad Paisley, Dierks Bentley and George Strait on the CMT Country Giants special.
