Meaning Behind The Song

Written by Kane Brown, together with Jordan Schmidt, Matt McGinn, and Josh Hoge, “Bury Me in Georgia” sings about a man’s desire to be laid to rest in Georgia, his hometown, and where his roots run deep. 

Its lyrics are mainly instructions for his family and friends should he die, where he clarifies that the details of his funeral do not matter to him. He does not care what color his suit shall be or who reads his eulogy as long as they bury him underneath the pines of Georgia and put “Go Dawgs” on his headstone.
