Brantley Gilbert tapped labelmates Thomas Rhett and Justin Moore for this Country-rocker. “Oh, it was awesome,” Rhett said to The Boot of working with his Valory Music Co labelmates. “You know, we’re the three guys on the label, and so it’s just really cool to have, first of all, three of your buddies on a song, and second of all, all three of the guys on your label on the same song.”

The song was penned by Gilbert and the Peach Pickers, a songwriter team composed of Rhett Akins (Thomas Rhett’s dad), Dallas Davidson, and Ben Hayslip. “It’s just a throwdown song, a party song,” Gilbert told Billboard magazine. “It’s when we all get together out in the middle of nowhere – we don’t need a club, a cover charge or nothing. Most of the time, you charge somebody three dollars for a Dixie cup, and let them drink a keg all night.”

The song has sold 417,000 copies in the U.S. as of October 2014.[4]

LYRICS:
Aw Son
Round these parts there ain’t much to do
Except work like a dog til Friday
Punch that clock
Cash that check raise a little hell til Sunday
Its about that time

There’s a party back in the woods tonight
Heard it thru the redneck grapevine
Gotta keg of beer and a buncha girls
Sure enough gonna be a good time

It’s a small town throwdown
Its time to tall boy up let them tailgates down
Yea Man its on tonight right into morning light
Crank that country up loud
It’s a small town throwdown

Ow we bout to throw it down son
Now we gotta field full of daisy dukes
Round here we know how to grow em
Rockin’ little body and long tan legs
Sure ain’t scared to show em naw

Show a little son girl
Somebody said them city boys
Riding around looking for some trouble
If they bring it cross that county line
Ya know there’s gonna be a rumble

It’s a small town throwdown
Its time to tall boy up let them tailgates down
Yea Man its on tonight right into morning light
Crank that country up loud
It’s a small town throwdown

Come on
It’s a small town

(Small town) Throwdown (Throwdown)
Its time to tall boy up
Let them tailgates down
Yea man its on tonight
Right in to the morning light
Crank that country up loud

(Crank it up loud)
It’s a small town Throwdown(Throwdown)
It’s a small town throwdown
Its time to tall boy up
Let them tailgates down
Aw man its on tonight

Right in the morning light
Crank that country up loud
It’s a small town throwdown
It’s a small town throwdown
Now that’s country ha ha, son
