Other Songs with the Words “Country Boy”

The words country boy have been used in many titles of country songs. These include John Denver’s “Thank God I’m A Country Boy,” Don Williams I’m Just A Country Boy,” and Alan Jacksons “Country Boy.”

About the Song

The song “Country Boy” is about a man who lives in the big city and works all the time. He doesn’t want people to think that he’s a big shot city guy and all its fancy. The character wants people to know that deep in him, he’s just a country boy at heart. He misses and prefers the life in the country, simple and happy. Furthermore, he sings that he may be working some fancy job, but he would rather have a simple job like being a haul collar or a cotton picker.

The Music Video

The video begins with Ricky sitting in his office when his uncle came to visit him and told him about him changing. Ricky reminded his uncle that he is still the same boy as he was. He showed his uncle around the city while singing the song. Bill Monroe, one of the best bluegrass musicians, played the role of Ricky Skaggs’ uncle. Ricky and Bill were also dancing in the video and it was a fun video to watch.
