I have to admit that before I heard this song, having only read the title, I assumed it would be YET another rocking party song. I was completely wrong. Instead, Redneck Crazy is actually a song about heartbreak.
Tyler Farr has a unique, gritty/raspy voice. Signed with Columbia Nashville, Tyler is definitely one of the most promising “new-comers” in Country Music. His voice, with its thick Missouri accent, is pure country. Tyler brings both power and emotion to his latest single. Redneck Crazy tells a tale about a crazy ex in a heartbreaking country song. The theme is often one typically done by a woman. Tyler Farr sings the song from a male’s point of view, giving us fresh take on an old idea.
The song is about a girlfriend who has been messing around with another guy, driving the singer/narrator/ex-boyfriend to go “Redneck Crazy”. The chorus,
"I’m gonna aim my headlights into your bedroom windows/ Throw empty beer cans at both of your shadows/ I didn’t come here to start a fight/ But I’m up for anything tonight/ You know you broke the wrong heart baby/ And drove me redneck crazy"
explains exactly what his kind of Redneck Crazy is. This ex-boyfriend is scorned, hurting, and getting his “Pissed-Off on”. Farr goes on to explain,
"Wish I knew how long it’s been going on/ How long you been getting some on the side/ No, he can’t amount to much by the look of that little truck/ Well he won’t be getting any sleep tonight,"
in the second verse of the song. Tyler Farr does a fantastic job of bringing the heartbreak and anger of the boyfriend done wrong to this song, through his vocals.
This song will definitely be a relatable one for fans. Redneck Crazy was written by Josh Kear, Mark Irwin, and Chris Tompkins, and is off Tyler’s album of the same name (Redneck Crazy). His new album is due out October 15th. If this single is any indication of what’s to come with the album, I’ll most definitely be purchasing it when it comes out!
