Riff: Kip Moore – “Pretty Girl”

Aug 21, 2013

Hey pretty girl wanna take you home/My momma’s gonna love you/She’ll make me sleep on the couch I know/Hey pretty girl wanna take you home

from Hey Pretty Girl lyrics by Kip Moore

As the newest old guy on the block, Kip Moore affirms his role in the vicious cycle of bad country music, meaning there’s only so many times you can country fry something before your arteries explodes. The pretty girl/country bumpkin motif has been repeated ad nauseam and should be benched indefinitely.
