The Song’s Inspiration
The song came to Moore when he borrowed a truck from his father to pick up a woman he was dating. The woman was not into him that much but he said that seeing him in his father’s truck made the woman seem to change into a whole new person. He told his father about it and his father said to write that down, hence, “Somethin’ ‘bout a Truck” was born. Some lyrics of the song is all about Moore’s life when he was in high school and college. Where he used to park on tailgates and drink beer with his friends. That’s why many people enjoyed the song for it was truly a throwback kind of song.
The song was written by Dan Couch and Kipling Moore in 2011. It was also a 2-timed platinum-certified song.
