"It's Good to Be Us" is a song written by Tim James and Dave Berg, and recorded by American country music artist Bucky Covington. It was released in September 2007 as the second single from his self-titled debut album. The song was produced by Sawyer Brown frontman Mark Miller.


"It's Good to Be Us" is an up-tempo country song about a couple, who despite not having much in terms of wealth, are happy just to be alive and that they have each other ("couldn't ask for more, wouldn't settle for less").
