In the video, Janson stands in full cameo by the bank of a slow-moving creek, while he names off all the “redneck” experiences that “chose him,” such as cutoff jeans, cheap cigarettes, and hunting.

“I believe in staying true to your roots, and I believe that if you’re going to make music for a fan base,” Janson told Rolling Stone. “I know as a listener, I want to be able to believe who I am listening to, and I am that kind of guy. No matter what the subject matter in my songs, in some form or facet I have lived, am living, or plan to be living that song.”
