New ‘Country’ Song Rocks a Down and Dirty Truck-lovin’ Spirit

By -

Cool, gritty, back roads attitude and Ford trucks dominate this hot new track. 

When you take three cool country acts and have them collaborate on a song called “Country,” you know it is going to be good. Upchurch, Adam Calhoun, and Demun Jones‘ new single is a banger with outlaw country soul. And naturally, that includes a lot of love for Ford trucks.

Unlike some of the music in the genre, this song and video has an edgier perspective. The lyrics are a little tougher. The video is free of any glamour. The fellas are shot on an overcast day, in a scrap yard, and hanging out in a yard littered with a mishmash cars, trucks, and lots of stuff. It lacks any pretense: Good and bad, this is country. It’s real, and it is pretty powerful.

In keeping with the style of the song is the choice of Ford truck. The video features a red third-generation Ford Ranger XLT. No tricked out ride in this video.

The lyrics include a F-250 shout-out: “Camouflaged 250 with the chromed out nuts/Gun racks, big guns, roughnecks, sunburnt/Make a city boy say ‘Bubba we don’t want none.'” And the chorus keeps on truckin’: “We from the country, the hollars and hills; If you wanna drive chains come snatch my gears.”

Calhoun adds “Hillbillies on the front porch bumpin’ our sh*t, Old cars in the front yard needin’ to be fixed.”

It’s a cool take on the classic country and truck collaboration. Check it out.
