At this point, it doesn’t even take a middle school education to figure out what a song with a title like this is about. A guy sees a girl in a “club” on the “dance floor” (because, after all, country music has evolved from bars to clubs now right?) and wants to see her shake it…..In multiple places from the bed of a truck, to out in the Tennessee moonlight. What a poet. Ugh….. seriously, what is there to say about songs like these anymore? We’re back once again to treating women like sex objects and again, this shaking will also take place on a dirt road that nobody else knows. If I had a nickel for all of these secret dirt roads mentioned I could buy Nashville and fire the writers who come up with this stuff. And of course, Cole tells us to “bring the beat back” in the bridge. There is no “bringing the beat back” in country, just stop. It also doesn’t help that Cole delivers absolutely nothing unique to this, no charisma, no distinctiveness, nothing. The only somewhat redeemable quality on this song is that it’s catchy, but the annoying kind of catchy.
Overall, this isn’t a song that I can get vehement about. It’s a song that I can laugh at for its elementary lyrics and embarrassing generic production. There weren’t many other good choices for a fourth single, but most would have been better than “Let Me See Ya Girl”.
Listen: “Let Me See Ya Girl”
