I feel for the young CM artists coming through today, especially, as the song says, style restrictions are imposed on them by certain sectors in the industry, that you must fit in a country music box, before they can become “successful”. This song speaks the truth and to me, thanks Rory & Joey.

Lyrics

Play The Song – Rory Feek
State One Songs America, ASCAP obo A Sling And A Prayer Music,ASCAP
and FMGI. IMRO

it’s too fast, it’s too slow, it’s too country, too rock & roll
it’s too happy, too sad, too short, or it’s way too long
yeah and it’s too bad they don’t just

play the song, play the song,
turn it up loud enough we can all sing along
and let the people decide if the music is right or its
wrong, man it’s a shame, instead of playing the game,
play the song, play the song

it’s too garth, too george strait
too right down the centre, too left of the plate
the hooks too weak or the subject matter’s way too
strong, whatever, yeah and it’s too bad they don’t just

play the song, play the song,
turn it up loud enough we can all sing along
& let the people decide if the music is right or it’s wrong
man it’s a shame, instead of playing the game,
play the song, play the song

and it’s too bad, if you ask me,
our songs gotta be so darn pc, so damn pc,

play the song, play the song,
turn it up loud enough we can all sing along
& let the people decide if the music is right or it’s wrong
man it’s a shame, instead of playing the game,
play the song, play the song
