Justin Moore, ‘My Kind of Woman’ – Lyrics Uncovered
Great song ideas can strike anywhere, and Justin Moore has learned to take advantage of inspiration no matter how awkward it seems at the time. The second track from his new album 'Outlaws Like Me' was finished with co-writers Jeremy Stover and Brian Dean Maher in a more traditional songwriting environment. 'My Kind of Woman' began in anything but that.
"The chorus of this song, I had sang it into my phone," Moore tells Taste of Country of the lyrics. "I don't remember if I was in an airport, or a restaurant or something." The singer says he made a conscious effort to include songs on this project that spoke to his female fans. He admits there wasn't much for the ladies on his self-titled debut, so he wanted to be sure his growing female audience felt included.
The first verse goes, "She likes an ice cold Bud pressed against her hand / Standing on the porch looking 'cross our land / Seeing the bass hit that top water / And that was my kind of woman first time I saw her."
The uptempo love song doesn't feel like a tribute to Moore's wife; the lyrics are open for interpretation. During the chorus he sings, "Yeah she looks good on my tractor, good on my truck / Good on her bed when the sun comes up / She's good with a cane pole, good with a gun / It's corn bread and sweet tea where she's from / She's my kind of woman, good as they come."
"My wife definitely influences the way I write songs, now more than ever," Moore says, although he admits he's never written a gooey love song in her honor. That's just not who he is. The entire song, which may end up being a radio single, took 20 minutes to finish once the threesome got working. "It was one of those that kind of fell out of the sky."
Taste of Country will be exploring the lyrics of each of the 13 tracks on Justin Moore's new album, leading up to the release date on June 21. Check back daily for the story behind a different song.
