Brooks & Dunn - Play Something Country
The song was co-written by Ronnie Dunn and Terry McBride. The idea came to Dunn after a show in Minnesota. According to McBride, who played bass guitar in Brooks & Dunn's road band, Dunn "comes busting onto the bus and says, 'how about this idea?' and he howls that ah oooh, aw, play something country!" Inspired by Gretchen Wilson, with whom they had been touring, McBride and Dunn decided to base the song's central character on Wilson's image.
