Here’s what would happen if you wrote a sexy song, but then kind of danced around the issues: it would not work.
And that’s kind of how Bryan planned it. To take it right to that edge.
“If you write a song like that and you don’t get really, really steamy, then I think you’re kind of dodging what it needs to be,” he told Billboard. “But if you go over the top with it, then it’s kind of icky and weird and not natural either. ’Strip It Down’ is just the right amount of sexiness, in my opinion,” he said of the tune he wrote with Jon Nite and Ross Copperman.
Listeners must agree, because the song is already in the Top 10 on Billboard’s country airplay chart.
