Gary LeVox is taking his solo career to the next level with his latest release, “Get Down Like That.”
The Rascal Flatts frontman instantly connected with the party anthem written by the talented Thomas Rhett, Ashley Gorley, HARDY and Jesse Frasure.
“I’ve loved this song from the first time I heard it and I hope y’all love it too,” said LeVox. “If you ain’t from a town like that, don’t worry we’re gonna show you how to get down like that. Turn it up loud!”
The country singer teaches listeners to “Get Down Like That,” referring to the special kind of fun that can only be found in the countryside, like ridin’ four-wheelers through the mud or coming together under Friday night lights. This fun-loving track, destined to be a hit, is just another example of how LeVox never fails to evoke the unfeigned memories of those irreplaceable summer nights.
“Hey, if you’re with me/If you wanna take it out of the city/get a little bit more nitty gritty/do some midnight fishin’ and some moonlight kissin’/come on/let’s ride/dance on the land of the milk and honey/ down here we do it up right/ if you wanna get to slippin’ out like that/ burned away your life where you ’bout like that/ ain’t your fault that you ain’t from a town like that/so let me show you how to get down like that,” he sings.
The lively lyric video showcases more of the activities that can be had from the haven of a small town, proving that all you need is to be surrounded by good friends and good music.
He is also encouraging fans to create and share their own fun, summer videos using the new single with the hashtag, #getdownlikethat.”
“Basically, it’s just about gettin’ out of the city, gettin’ out in the country and kind of livin’ the lifestyle that we live,” he shared via Big Machine. “The one part of the song it says, (singing) ‘Ain’t your fault that you ain’t from a town like that, so let me show you how to get down like that.’ I love it so much. It’s just about what we drive, what we do out here in the country. It’s just a country lifestyle and the way that we love to live.”
Stepping into the next chapter of his career, this song follows his previous releases, “Working On Sunday” and “We Got Fight,” which was featured on the soundtrack in the Netflix film, The Ice Road.
Since the iconic country trio known as the Rascal Flatts came to an end in 2020, LeVox began his own journey and has continued to build his music catalog without his bandmates. His 2021 debut project, One On One serves as his introduction as a solo artist and features collabs with BRELAND, MercyMe, Jonathan McReynolds and LeVox’s own daughter, Brittany. The EP is now nominated for the Bluegrass/Country/Roots Album of the Year at the 2022 Dove Awards airing this October 21.
With more music on the horizon, Gary LeVox continues to set dates for shows that will take him across the U.S. He is next set to play on August 30 in Monroe, WA.
