“Body Like a Back Road”
Written by Zach Crowell, Ashley Gorley, Sam Hunt, Shane McAnally, and Josh Osborne
This song is ridiculous.
At least when Brad Paisley sang “Ticks,” he was trying to be funny. Sam Hunt is being quite serious when he compares a woman to a back road.
He should’ve realized when he had to repeat the curves metaphor in the second verse that there simply wasn’t enough of an idea here to stretch out into a full song. I’d say he’s lowered the bar for country music, but honestly, I haven’t seen that thing in years.
I’m off to listen to Hearts in Armor as a palate cleanser. Have a nice day, everyone.
