Boondocks (3:59)

Cover of The Road To Here

From The Road To Here and 2 other releases

Little Big Town’s business affairs were in disarray when they wrote this song, as they were towards the end of getting dropped from Sony. Speaking with Songfacts about this song in a 2011 interview, Phillip Sweet explained: “‘Boondocks’ was inspired by us just wanting to speak about who we are and what we’re about. Because there seemed to be a little bit of confusion there at Sony when we were signed there that we were a put-together band, or we weren’t country, we’re too slick. And nowadays you wouldn’t even get those kind of questions, but at that time it just seemed really strange. And I don’t think radio really understood who we were yet. So we just wanted to write this, and it was therapy for us and it was a chance for us to really make a statement about our roots. And that’s really what it was.”
