Taste of Country: Kip Moore, 'Somethin' 'Bout a Truck'-- Lyrics Uncovered

The lyrics to Kip Moore's latest single, 'Somethin' Bout a Truck,' are words straight out of the singer's life. Moore wrote the tune after reflecting back on his youth and the impact a truck made when picking up chicks.

"The song is what it is," Moore tells Taste of Country with a grin. "It's one of those things where I drove a little box car in high school and college. In both high school and college, similar things happened to me where I was maybe pursuing somebody. I got somebody to go out with me, and they didn't seem real interested every time they climbed in that little bucket car of mine."

However, Moore quickly learned that a truck can change everything. "On two different occasions that thing broke down and somebody let me use their truck," he continues. "It was like I became a whole new person. I couldn't peal [girls] off of me. I was like, 'Wait a minute … I'm the same damn dude, I'm just driving a different ride. There must be something about a truck!'"

"There's somethin' 'bout a truck in a field and a girl in a red sundress with an ice cold beer to her lips / Begging for another kiss / There's somethin' 'bout you and me and the birds and the bees and Lord have mercy it's a beautiful thing / Ain't nothin' 'bout it luck / There's somethin' 'bout a truck," Moore sings in the chorus lyrics.

"That's how the song came about," notes Moore. "I'm sure there are other guys out there who have lived the same scenario just like me!"

'Somethin' 'Bout a Truck' is set to hit country radio on September 26.
