Craig Morgan’s “Redneck Yacht Club” is The Best Second Hit Song Ever 

Craig Morgan - Redneck Yacht Club
by

Most of us have already had our fill of summer fun, right? Such as drinking beer and just having a good time with our friends and family. Craig Morgan’s album My Kind of Livin’, which features two of his greatest hits, captures the same vibe. “Redneck Yacht Club” and “That’s What I Love About Sunday.”

“Redneck Yacht Club,” the second single from his album My Kind of Livin’, was released in 2005. It reached number two on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, trailing Keith Urban’s “Better Life.”

Peter Zavadil directed the music video, which was shot at Tennessee’s Percy Priest Lake. Morgan may be seen having the fun of his life with his buddies in the summer heat. The music is lively in a way that will make your body sway.

That might be why so many listeners fell in love with it. So much so that the RIAA awarded the song a GOLD for 500,000 sales and another GOLD for digital downloads. Thom Shepherd and Steve Williams wrote the song initially.

As of 2022, the music video on YouTube still has a reasonably high number of views, with around 26 million views in total. The music video includes a soothing background track and an upbeat vibe. That might be the reason why so many listeners, both old and new, were able to resonate with it.

And for some additional fun fact about the song, Blake Shelton, Aaron Tippin, and other country music stars also made a cameo appearance in the said music video. The party that the group of devoted friends is throwing represents the enjoyment they experience on the lake “all summer long.” 

On the other hand, Craig Morgan once told USA Today that he believes ‘redneck’ was once regarded as a negative word, but that is no longer the case. For him, it’s now more of a way of life than anything else.

So, if you’re searching for a song to listen to while driving to the beach this summer, Craig Morgan’s “Redneck Yacht Club” is definitely a great choice. You may listen to the song right now by clicking here.
