“Take it On Back”
Written by Dylan Altman, Chase Bryant, and Tommy Lee James

“Pray For You”
The Swon Brothers
Written by Jessi Alexander, Tommy Lee James, and Eric Paslay
If you thought the only thing missing from today’s warmed-over, wannabe rock but we’re calling it country was mixing it with the worst of the genre’s previous obsession with suburban tales of faith and inspiration, I present to you…The Swon Brothers. “Pray For You” manages to evoke the worst sonic habits of today’s country music trends while also borrowing liberally from the Hallmark Hallelujah phase the genre went through at the turn of the century.
Blake Shelton featuring Gwen Sebastian

Is a play on words really that romantic? I can imagine being asked, “If I said you had a beautiful body, would you hold it against me?” getting an icebreaking laugh, for sure.
