About the song:
Marty Brown has been told that he is “too country” for country music all his life. In the 90s, it was even written on the pages of Rolling Stone. But the country artist and composer took it easy. He came up with the song “I’m From the Country” and ended it with co-authors Richard Young and Stan Webb. The song became a great success for Tracy Byrd in 1998. The original song title was: “I’m From the Country and I Like it That Way.” The idea of the title, came out reading a musical critique in Rolling Stone Magazine, from his first album “High and Dry”, the criticism was very good, but, at the end of the article, Marty was classified as too country for the country, and Marty exclaimed: What’s wrong with that? What is that? ” I’m from the country and I like it like that “.. Marty states that song literally changed his life. He returned to Kentucky and was able to build his house. That song has done everything for me.




Tracy Byrd – I’m From The Country lyrics

Way back up in the country
Back in the hills
Down in the hollows where the folks are real
Livin’ with the crazzies and the old wildcats
Sawed off shotguns and coonskin caps
That’s where I’m from and I’m proud to say
I’m from the country and I like it that way
Everybody knows everybody
Everybody calls you friend
You don’t need an invitation
Kick off your shoes come on in
Yeah we know how to work and we know how to play
We’re from the country and we like it that way
All day long we work in the fields
Then bring it on home for a home cooked meal
We love ya like Sunday
Treat ya like Saturday night
And when the beds get full we can sleep in the hay (Hey)
We’re from the country and we like it that way
Everybody knows everybody
Everybody calls you friend
You don’t need an invitation
Kick off your shoes come on in
Yeah we know how to work and we know how to play
We’re from the country and we like it that way
Everybody knows everybody
Everybody calls you friend
You don’t need an invitation
Kick off your shoes come on in
Yeah we know how to work and we know how to play
We’re from the country
We’re from the country
We’re from the country
And we like it that way
