I guess that when you’re still young and want to write a nostalgic song, you have to do it about your childhood. The problem is, unless you’re wise before your time, there isn’t much to say other than describing what it was like, glorifying the experience a bit and talking about how much you miss it. I’m sure that it’s meaningful to Bryan and that people with similar backgrounds will relate to it.
As songs on the same theme go overall, “We Rode in Trucks” is decent, but similar ground has already been covered this year with greater effect by Miranda Lambert and Rodney Atkins.
