"Country Song" is a song by South African rock band Seether. It was released on March 8, 2011 as the lead single from their fifth studio album Holding Onto Strings Better Left to Fray.[1]

Background

According to frontman Shaun Morgan, the track's title "got its name from the swampy verse riff".[2] On the band's official message board, Morgan explained the track's background, saying "in some ways I guess I was dealing with growing up and having to make better life choices. It's definitely not a country song, but we recorded the album in Nashville, and felt like it was a small homage to such a wonderful city."[2]
