Jon tells us more:  “I remember hearing it for the first time ‘cause Rhett Akins sent it to me and said, ‘You and Luke need to record this song,’” says Jon.  “Luke called me like an hour later was like, ‘We gonna do this song, man?’  And it was just perfect.  He comes from a farming background.  I come from a farming/cowboys kind of lifestyle all the time now.  It’s just perfect for me and him to sing together.” 

Cowboys And Plowboys” was written by Rhett, Jacob Rice and Cole Taylor.

Mr. Saturday Night World Tour stops in Billings, Montana, on February 13th.
