“Small Town Girl” by Scotty McCreery
The album “Small Town Girl” is derived from, “Same Truck”, is one in which, as its name sorta implies, is partially inspired by Scotty McCreery’s small-town roots. And in this particular piece he is delineating the type of characteristics which define a prototypical, ideal romantic interest from such localities found in places like his beloved home state of North Carolina. And there are many of such attributes listed. But for the sake of brevity, we can say they basically boil down to two qualities.
The first would be that homegirl is very down-to-earth. And besides for her cool disposition, this trait also manifests itself in other ways, such as the subject being able to effectively handle her boyfriend’s Chevy.
Then, there is her beauty. Yes, the small-town girl’s tomboyishness is countered, or perhaps we can say from McCreery’s perspective edified ever by her natural beauty. Nay, her looks aren’t buttressed by artificiality like a big city girl. And when it comes to physically loving her partner, like planting a kiss on him, she does so hard.
So what all of this combined ultimately culminates in is a romantic interest who can have a man ready to marry her most expeditiously.
And the purpose of this song apparently revolves around the vocalist encouraging us guys to go out and find a “small town girl” of our own. And as for Scotty, he has already found one who he intends to ‘spend his whole life with’, with such obviously being a reference to his longtime girlfriend, Gabi Dugal, whom he married in 2018.
