Single Review: Dustin Lynch, "She Cranks My Tractor"

Well… it has words that rhyme.

There’s certainly nothing wrong with a good sexy country song, as such have a storied history in the genre.  But there is something to be said for subtlety.  The best attempts are often lightly clever, emotionally raw, or perhaps delivered with the tongue planted firmly in the cheek.

Everything about “She Cranks My Tractor” practically beats the listener over the head, from the pounding bass to the T.M.I. lyrics.  It’s like three minutes of Lynch bellowing “Yee haw!  Farm sex!!!”  The titular metaphor feels corny and tacky (Can you imagine playing this in front of your non-country-fan peers?), and the lyrics lay on the details so thick as to make the listener feel voyeuristic.  It’s

all audacity, with little genuine creativity.

On the positive side:  It has fiddle and banjo.  I like fiddle and banjo.

Dustin Lynch has a great voice, and has earned a coveted spot on country radio playlists.  No need to waste it on this.

    The video is even worse. It’s basically three minutes of soft core porn with little cuts to Dustin Lynch and his band. Just awful.

    This does what I thought was impossible–it makes “She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy” sound like a Beatles-caliber song…and I never thought I’d ever say that!

    …in case the village people ever need a new cowboy.

    –I think that songs like this are the reason why he ‘earned’ that coveted spot on country radio.

    …can’t get over thinkin’ what cowboy-picture “trailer” would add farcing that one above of dustin the angel.

    Country music has scraped through the bottom of the barrel, dug 20 feet under the barrel and accidentally broke through to an underground sewage pipe. This song was found at the bottom of that sewage pipe.

    A “D” grade is extremely generous.

    I completely agree. With both your review and Mike’s comment; soft core porn indeed. It’s all way too much for me.
