Austin co-wrote the tune with his band members, Kyle Palermino, Shance Carlisle, Tommy Furbacher and Ken Kudsin. It has a laid-back vibe to it, his vocals are sultry, and its production is neat.
William David served as producer of the song, and it was recorded in Royal Oak, Michigan, at Advanced Recording Studios.
In the actual song, he makes allusions to such musical acts as Lynyrd Skynrd and country legend George Jones, and the male narrators talks about all the romantic things he and his significant other will enjoy during a "redneck date night."
His music video, directed and produced by Sam Logan Khaleghi, was filmed in northern Michigan in the Leland area, and several parts were in the sleeping bear sand dunes, as well as the historic fish town. Austin's wife makes a cameo in the video as well, which works out quite well and makes it even more romantic.
The video follows the story of the song quite well, since Austin picks up his wife with his pick-up truck, and they visit horses and they go riding on them. In the following scenes they are seen fishing by the river and they go for a swim in the beach, where they are "dancing" and "drinking home-made wine." While at the beach, they are also skipping rocks, while Austin is strumming his acoustic guitar and serenading her to a tune.
An indie Michigan country musician, Austin has shared the stage with such artists as Lee Brice, Brantley Gilbert, Uncle Kracker, Aaron Lewis, Josh Gracin, Charlie Worsham, Luke Bryan, Jake Owen, Florida Georgia Line, Colt Ford, Cole Swindell, and he has played some of the largest country music festivals in Michigan.
The Verdict
