Ryan Follese, ‘Put a Label on It’ [Listen]
Ryan Follese brings his pop-rock sensibilities to "Put a Label on It." The singer's story about the start of a relationship is told within a very country arrangement, but his conversation steps outside those walls.
Follese brings a fresh perspective to a common country theme. During "Put a Label on It," he describes that moment when a relationship becomes official — Facebook official, even. It's a familiar adolescent scene that recalls high school nerves, even if he's speaking of two people of drinking age.
The light-hearted new single from Follese's self-titled EP is relatable, but not permanent. Fans will enjoy the song in the moment, much like the two lovers he's singing of. "Put a Label on It" is a great introduction to the Hot Chelle Rae singer.
Did You Know?: Ryan Follese's dad wrote Tim McGraw's "Something Like That."

Ryan Follese's "Put a Label on It" Lyrics:
You've been peeling back the label on that long neck bottle for ten minutes now, spit it out / You've been drinking up the courage, I’m watching your wheels turning so just lay it out, what's it about / I think I know where this is going / And it's gonna be a big change / I can read you like a book, girl / And we're on the same page.
So you tell your friends and I'll tell mine / We both know it's coming It's too hard to hide, yeah / Can't wait for another minute / Let's go and get it over with / Acting like it isn't when we know it is / I think it's time we define the relationship / You're all that I ever wanted / Let's go and put a label on it.
Know we took a little time, there's more clothes of yours than mine in my closet now, I don't know how / We didn't do this sooner, yeah, there ain't nothing cooler than having you around, up in this house / Yeah I like the way you're smiling / When you're looking at me that way / I see it written on your face, girl / We're on the same page.
We might catch a little hell for this / 'Cause it ain't no secret / They've been telling us what this is.
Me and you, you and me / Let's put a label on it, baby / Let's make it official / Me and you, you and me / We can change our status.
