“Cowtown” by George Ducas
What country music has right here is a new party anthem with absolutely no mention of dirt roads, moonshine, pink toes or tailgates.
What it does have is plenty of grinding guitars, thumping bass, pounding kick drum and Texas-sized attitude, justifiably. George Ducas is a homegrown Texan and he co-wrote “Cowtown” with another Texas-to-Tennessee transplant, Jim Beavers, so the lyric speaks to those country lifestyles that may have been cultivated more on a ranch than on a farm, more in the cow pen than the turn row.
George has also been penning tunes for others, like Sara Evans (“Real Fine Place to Start”) and Josh Thompson (“Won’t Be Lonely Long”).
Rocking and sassy, “Cowtown” salutes Friday night fun with enough adrenaline-pounding ampage to carry you through Saturday, too. Whether George is speaking specifically about Fort Worth, famously known for its historic stockyards, or any bovine burg out there, it doesn’t even matter.
If this tune doesn’t get you ready to slip on your boots and hit the hardwoods, have another shot.
