With the combined efforts of Chris Young, Corey Crowder, and Chris DeStefano as co-producers, the song seamlessly embraces the iconic guitar lick from David Bowie’s “Rebel Rebel,” granting the legendary rocker a rightful place as a co-writer on the track.
Alongside Bowie’s contributions, the song’s creative force also includes the talented of Ashley Gorley, Jesse Frasure, and Josh Thompson. This collaboration has resulted in a musical piece that pays homage to Bowie’s legacy while elevating it with a fresh and contemporary touch.
“When I first heard this song, I immediately connected with the groove and the lyrics with nods to so many things I can personally relate to,” Young said in a statement. “It made me think back to when I first got started playing country dive bars and it was the same kind of thing. I drove a beat-up truck to and from gigs where I played music hoping the audiences would relate… and if I’m being honest, hoping the girls would like it too.”
Young’s goal for the new track is to have his audience embrace the high-energy, uplifting lyrics as the perfect soundtrack for those carefree, windows-down kind of days
“Young love and Saturday nights are things that just go together and this feels like one of those big summer songs where you just want to roll the windows down, crank up the volume, and just drive around to it,” he adds.
Released with the song is an electrifying music video that brings the party-ready anthem to life.
