The lyrics to Zac Brown Band‘s latest single ‘No Hurry’ are a refreshing look at slowing life down to enjoy some of the simpler things it has to offer. That’s exactly the mind frame songwriter Wyatt Durrette was in when he began writing the song, prior to finishing it with Brown and singer James Otto.

“About two years ago in the spring, me and a friend woke up, and it was a such beautiful day that we decided to head down to the Georgia Aquarium to goof off,” Durrette tells Taste of Country. “As we were driving down the road, I was thinking about a small list of things I probably should’ve been doing instead, but it was just so beautiful out that you didn’t want to do work. I kind of just started writing that first verse as it came to me about not being in a hurry.”

You know my old car needs washing / And the front yard needs a trim / And the telephone keeps ringing / And the boss man knows I know it’s him / And the bills ain’t gonna pay themselves / No matter anyway / ‘Cause I ain’t in no hurry today,” he wrote in the opening lyrics to ‘Nu Hurry.’

“The first time James and I sat down to write, like any session, you throw ideas back and forth,” explains Durrette. “He is such a great guy, and we’ve become good friends. About 30 minutes in, I sang that opening verse to him, and right away he liked it.”

“He said he would like to finish that song,” says Otto. “I loved the first verse, so we sat down and hammered out the second verse and talked about what it was all going to be.”

There’s nothing wrong with an old cane fishing pole / And the smell of early spring / Sit down in a fold-up easy chair / On a quiet shady river bank / Let the world go on without me / Wouldn’t have it any other way / ‘Cause I ain’t in no hurry today,” they continued to write in the song’s lyrics.

“It was just one of those days where everything seemed right,” Otto recalls. “It all came out fast. It was a great day to write and was easy.”

“James was a big contributor to this song,” praises Durrette. “He helped with the melody and chorus. We wrote the chorus and finished up a good part of the rest of the song. We were close, and then I brought it to Zac and the band. Zac finished writing it with us, and the band put their touch on it to make it what it is now!”
