February 6.2014 – The Story Behind “My Kinda Party” by Jason Aldean

Brantley Gilbert talks about Jason Aldean‘s hit, ‘My Kinda Party.’ The tune is a song Brantley wrote by himself many years ago and recorded for his own album, ‘A Modern Day Prodigal Son.’

“Me and all of my friends used to go hang out at a farm in Jackson County [Georgia]. We’d always go in and close the gate, and it was really just a field party. I also had some friends in Banks County, and we’d do the same thing there.

I wanted to write a song about those parties … There are a lot of really, really good ones that you probably won’t be able to write about! [laughs] The song sparks a good time. It kind of takes me back home to those days when we’d get out in the middle of a field somewhere, light a bonfire and have a good ole time.”

The song has become Aldean’s tenth Top 10 hit on that chart, peaking at number two.

LYRICS: Written by Brantley Gilbert

I worked all week.
Cleaned up, clean cut, and clean shaved.
I got the cover off the ’68.
I fired it up, and let them horses sing.
A little pretty thing.
A little tan legged Georgia dream.
She’s a’rockin’ them holey jeans.
Baby, what you got goin’ on Saturday? You know,
Words got it, there’s gonna be a party,
Out of town about half a mile.
Four wheel drives and big mud tires.
Muscadine wine

[Chorus]
Oh baby, you can find me.
In the back of a jacked up tailgate.
Sittin’ ’round watchin’ all these pretty things.
a’Get down in that Georgia clay.
And I’ll find peace.
In the bottom of a real tall cold drink.
Chillin’ with some Skynyrd and some old Hank.
Lets get this thing started.
It’s my kind of party.

Well if you wanna drink.
Go on baby, just do your thing.
But give up your keys.
Hell why drive when you can stay with me?
And then after while we’ll sneak away from the bonfire.
Walk by the moonlight and down to the riverside.
Gotcha sippin’ on the moonshine.
Baby, if you’re in mood and you can settle for a one night rodeo.
If you can be my tan-legged Juliet,
I’ll be your Redneck Romeo.

Oh baby, you can find me.
In the back of a jacked up tailgate.
Sittin’ ’round watchin’ all these pretty things.
a’Get down in that Georgia clay.
And I’ll find peace.
In the bottom of a real tall cold drink.
Chillin’ with some Skynyrd and some old Hank.
Lets get this thing started.
It’s my kind of party.

Oh baby, you can find me.
In the back of a jacked up tailgate.
Sittin’ ’round watchin’ all these pretty things.
a’Get down in that Georgia clay.
And I’ll find peace.
In the bottom of a real tall cold drink.
Chillin’ with some Skynyrd and some old Hank.
Lets get this thing started.
It’s my kind of party.

Haha, y’all ready for this?
Y’all go head and turn it on
