The Story Behind Dustin Lynch's "Where It's At"


Sometimes a song idea sticks with a person. Sometimes those moments in time can easily be recalled years after the song has already been written. Dustin Lynch's "Where It's At" is quite possibly one of those songs.

In fact, co-writers Cary Barlowe, Zach Crowell, and Matt Jenkins still remember how this particular song came about. They will likely continue to do so for years to come. Both Crowell and Jenkins will especially remember the title because it came about from a conversation between the two of them mere seconds before Barlowe arrived.

"I can't remember what I was talking about - maybe a pizza place, and I said, 'Oooh, that pizza place, that's where it's at, right there,'" explains Crowell. "I recall Matt going, 'That's the title - 'Where It's At.' Probably two seconds later, Cary walked in the door."

The trio took it from there, trying to write a laid back tune that projected both confidence and light-hearted fun.

The Story Behind Rodney Atkins' "Farmer's Daughter"

Rodney Atkins made quite an impression on country radio with his "Farmer's Daughter" single, which was penned by hit songwriters Rhett Akins, Ben Hayslip, and Marv Green. As soon as the song hit the air, it seemed to take off.

Though the three of them definitely know what they are doing, this was the first song the trio co-wrote together. It only took Green coming in with the line 'just when I thought it couldn't get no hotter, I caught a glimpse of the farmer's daughter' and the other two were on board with the idea.

"We thought it was awesome," recalls Akins. "It's a farming and real rural farm scene about this guy who took this job on a farm. He hated it because it was so hot outside and it's really hard work. He was thinking about quitting until he saw the farmer's daughter! Then suddenly he liked his job and stuck it out. He's glad he didn't quit."

Rodney heard the song and told the writers that it was his wife's favorite song so just had to cut it. It turned out to be a lot of people's favorite song because it did very well on country radio!
