"Kick The Dust Up" as written by Dallas Davidson, Chris Destefano and Ashley Gorley....
All week long it's a farmin' town
They're makin' that money grow
Tractors, plows with flashing lights
Backin' up a two lane road
They take one last lap around
That sun up high goes down
And then it's on, come on
Girl kick it on back
Z71 like a Cadillac

We go way out where
There ain't nobody
We turn this cornfield
Into a party
Pedal to the floorboard
Eight up in a four door
Burnin' up a back road song
Park it and we pile out
Baby, watch your step now
Better have your boots on
Kick the dust up
Back it on up
Fill your cup up
Let's tear it up, up
And kick the dust up

Bar downtown they got a line
Of people way out the door
$10 dollar drinks, it's packed inside
I don't know what they're waitin' for
Got me a jar full of clear
And I got that music for your ears
And it's like knock, knock, knock goes the diesel
If you really wanna see the beautiful people

We go way out where
There ain't nobody
We turn this cornfield
Into a party
Pedal to the floorboard
Eight up in a four door
Burnin' up a back road song
Park it and we pile out
Baby, watch your step now
Better have your boots on
Kick the dust up
Back it on up
Fill your cup up
Let's tear it up, up
And kick the dust up

Just follow me down 'neath the 32 bridge
Y'all be glad you did

We go way out where
There ain't nobody
We turn this cornfield
Into a party
Pedal to the floorboard
Eight up in a four door
Burnin' up a back road song
Park it and we pile out
Baby watch your step now
Better have your boots on
Kick the dust up
Back it on up
Fill your cup up
That's what's up, up
Let's kick the dust up

    General CommentCountry music may have a reputation as a dumbed-down brand of music meant for backwoods rural folk, but according to a new study released this week the genre actually boasts the smartest lyrics of any major American genre over the past 10 years. According to the analysis, country had a “readability score” well above pop, rock, R&B and hip-hop, though that wasn’t saying much. Country’s average reading level came in at just above third grade.Kick the Dust Up is representative of a systemic issue plaguing country music, which is that so many of the biggest singles are written by the same handful of writers. Why are there so many party songs that sound just like That’s My Kind of Night and Kick the Dust Up? Because half of them are written by Dallas Davidson and Co! The number of hitmakers has shrunken into a tiny, label-approved pool. According to a report by the Tennesseean earlier this year, Nashville has lost a whopping 80% of its songwriters since 2000, and that lack of variety is (unsurprisingly) leading to a lack of lyrical variety as well.

    Country may be the most intelligent genre for now, but with songs like Kick the Dust Up permeating airwaves, it’s looking dumber and dumber by the moment




    Country had a leg-up on rival genres thanks to longer words like “tacklebox” and “Louisiana"

    The study didn’t take into account metaphors, tone or potentially playful lyricism, and instead based its findings on word count, word length and the number of syllables contained in each word. Country had a leg-up on rival genres thanks to longer words like “tacklebox” and “Louisiana”, according to author Andrew Powell-Morse, though he also argued that country’s intelligence was in decline over the past 10 years. Among the genre’s biggest stars, Carrie Underwood’s lyrics were deemed the smartest at a grade level of 3.72 and Florida Georgia Line’s deemed the dumbest, with just a 2.93 reading level. As it turns out, lines like “This is how we roll/We rollin’ into town” aren’t considered especially smart.

    The study’s conclusion that country lyrics are getting dumber is well-timed given the release of Luke Bryan’s thuddingly dim new single Kick the Dust Up, which will undoubtedly become the A-lister’s latest No 1 track. (They all do. He has been the genre’s biggest star for two years running.) It is almost a carbon-copy of Bryan’s divisive That’s My Kind of Night, which Zac Brown unceremoniously called “the worst song I’ve ever heard” in a radio interview, claiming that songs like it made him “ashamed to be even in the same format”.

    My OpinionA pretty vapid song that wants to be country but can't shake its pop sensibilities.
