Skinny Jean Bro Country

He sings about horses and drinkin’
From a holllow in the Hollywood hills??
Thinks those concrete pastures, that he looks out on
Have prepared him for Nashville

The record execs all love him
He’s got a face made for tv
He just assumes that the auto tune
Is for the finger snap sounds and beats

He’s hardcore skinny jean bro country
He’d get his ass kicked in a fight
All the whiskey he claims to drink up on stage
Is watered down ultra light
He’s the next big wonder with one hit
And to build up his self esteem
They’ll make him believe he’s the next greatest thing
In skinny jean bro country

While the women claim they want him
In his turned around baseball cap
His manicures make his metrosexual ways
Much more than just a fad

When asked who inspired his music
He said there’s so many I cannot say
But in a few years when his name disappears
It won’t matter anyway

He’s hardcore skinny jean bro country
He’d get his ass kicked in a fight
All the whiskey he claims to drink up on stage
Is just watered down ultra light
He’s the next big wonder with one hit
And to build up his self esteem
They’ll make him believe he’s the next greatest thing
In skinny jean bro country

Over coffee and Kotb each morning
He looks back wonders where it all went
He sits there and grieves, why were the labels so mean
To a big country star like me

He’s hardcore skinny jean bro country
He’d get his ass kicked in a fight
Still makes believe, swears he is the king
Of skinny jean bro country

He sits there and weeps
Claiming he’s still the king….
Of skinny jean bro country

I can imagine this going down well at an open mic night somewhere.

Feels pretty complete already. It's got strong attitude and tone to it, and the lyric reads smoothly.

That core line: "hardcore skinny jean bro country" should sing out very well.

Good job!

Thanks Owen. I replied a few days back but it’s not showing and I’m not sure why. Either way, yes more of an open mic one no doubt.

I like it.. good story.. but some of the rhyme scheme doesn't work. I can think of a few this song would describe. And if it made it into the big time, you'd have a few enemies for life.. lol
