Ladies and Gentleman…..The Troublemakers!!

This assembly of talent is giving us country super-group vibes— and we like it.

“‘Straight to Hell’ was huge in my day—when it was played in the bar, every single person in the bar was singing and hugging their best friend,” Rucker shared with Nash Country Daily. “I’ve wanted to cut that song since I came to Nashville, and I kept saying I was going to cut it someday. For this record, I was thinking about cutting it. Then Charles Kelley called me out of the blue and says, ‘Man, I was just listening to Drivin’ N’ Cryin’s “Straight to Hell” and I think you should cut it, and you should let me sing on it.’ I took that as the universe telling me it was time to cut the song, and I cut it. Jason [Aldean] and Luke [Bryan] and Charles and I are good buddies, so getting them to come sing on it made it something special.”

“Straight to Hell” Lyrics

I grew up just west of the tracks
Holdin’ me to hold me back
Around your door she’s callin’ out my name
She said “son, won’t you go outside?
I got a man comin’ over tonight”
The seventh one, in seven days
So I go down to the parking lot
And here ’round all my friends
And roam the streets ’till dawn breaks again
I come in at 5 a.m.
And she is waiting for me
She said “where have you been?”
I said I was out
She said “you’re no good ’cause you’re running without love”
And I’m going straight to hell
Just like my mama said
I’m going straight to hell
I’m going straight to hell
Just like my mama said
I’m going straight to hell (oh, I’m gonna burn it down, baby)
The black widow and the ladies’ man
Met down at the laundromat
And tried to make me understand
The neighbors were all in a stir
About what they might have heard
And running down, they shout it, so it seemed
Next door, a girl she lived
About the same age as me
And asked me to come upstairs for a scene
And just then her mother burst in
And said “you’re the son of that bitch, you’re no wind
Get out of my house
And hit the road”
And I kept falling like a Rolling Stones song
‘Cause I’m going straight to hell
Just like my mama said
I’m going straight to hell (oh, straight to hell)
And I’m going straight to hell
Just like my mama said
I’m going straight to hell (oh, hell boy)
The stars came out and warmed me so
As I walked on down the road
Fifty bucks and a suitcase steered me clear
She took my hand as we walked into the sun
A new day’s promise had just begun
We’ll make it alone whether you like it or not
And I turned around and shouted “help me, mother!”
‘Cause I’m going straight to hell
Just like my mama said
I’m going straight to hell (oh yeah)
I’m going straight to hell
Just like my mama said
I’m going straight to hell (oh boy, say it one more time, now)
I’m going straight to hell
Just like my mama said
I’m going straight to hell
Oh Lord, help me
Yeah, I’ll bring the whiskey boys
Y’all taking it with me
Help me Jesus, help me Jesus
We all know

We look forward to watching this visual story unfold. Share this exciting news with other country music fans!
