"Take It On Back" is a song recorded by American country music artist Chase Bryant. It was released in July 2014 as his debut single.[1] Bryant wrote the song with Dylan Altman and Tommy Lee James.[2]

Critical reception[edit]

Taste of Country reviewed the single favorably, saying that "Songs about summer love that couldn’t last aren’t anything new in country music. But if the theme is classic country, Bryant kicks it up a notch (or ten) with a strong rock ‘n roll feel that you won’t find on most traditional songs."[3] Markos Papadatos of Digital Journal gave the song four stars out of five, writing that Bryant's vocals are "pleasant" and "he really knows how to shred the guitar on this tune." Papadatos added that "the production is strong, and the melodies and chorus are infectious."[1]

Music video[edit]

The music video was directed by Wes Edwards and premiered in November 2014.[4]
