Raised on Country

Chris Young

Git a little southern drawl in my talk

Little pickup truck on my highway

Got a little boot stomp in my walk

Little neon lighting my Friday

Got some Tennessee in my whiskey

Raise a cup up if you with me

I was raised on Merle, raised on Willie

Got my Honky Tonk attitude from Joe Diffie

Daddy did too, it’s family tradition

If someone cranks it up, you can’t help but listen

My upbringing sounds like George Strait singing

And I gotta give props to the radio

’Cause if you know me, I was raised on country

It’s the only reason that I survived

Every breakup and every party

It’s the soundtrack to my life

It runs deep in my DNA

I was raised on Merle, raised on Willie

Got my Honky Tonk attitude from Joe Diffie

Daddy did too, it’s family tradition

If someone cranks it up, you can’t help but listen

My upbringing sounds like George Strait singing

And I gotta give props to the radio

’Cause if you know me, I was raised on country

I was raised on country

(Raised on country music)

Learned a lot about living and a little ’bout love

(Raised on country music)

And you know that’s something I’m so proud of

...

Background

“Raised on Country” was co-penned by Chris Young, as well as Corey Crowder and Cary Barlowe. In the lyrics, he tips his hat to such iconic country singer-songwriters as Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, and Joe Diffie. It will certainly resonate well with his listeners, and it ought to be a hit on the radio airwaves, due to its nostalgic, retro ’90s vibe.
