Makin’ Tracks: Brantley Gilbert Enlists HARDY, Toby Keith for ‘Worst Country Song’ Parody

“The Worst Country Song” is a sendup of every other stereotypical one, slagging the lifestyle linchpins in the genre (“I hate beer and honky-tonk women”) and celebrating the stuff that country’s songs typically try to escape (“I love cities and traffic jams”).

The idea belonged to HARDY, who conceived it on Feb. 22 during a songwriting retreat in Matagorda, Texas, 100 miles west of Galveston on the Gulf Coast. Away from the writers’ rooms, he was part of a large group engaged in fishing — one of the activities he would knock in his parody — when the title came up.

“It was a big group of guys,” remembers HARDY. “Somebody in the distance just said, ‘Well, that’s the worst song of all time.’ And I just, in my head, I thought, ‘What if it was the worst country song of all time?’ “
