Content[edit]

The song is a moderate up-tempo in which the male narrator attempts to get the attention of a female who is a member of a country club. After she tells him that only members are allowed in the country club, he responds by saying that he, too, is a member of a "country club" because he likes country music. In the second verse, he continues trying to convince her even further.

Music video[edit]

This was his first music video and it was directed by Jim May.
