Sometimes the best songs come from absolutely nowhere, which is exactly what happened the day Lee Brice's new single, "Parking Lot Party," was born. Rhett Akins, his singer-songwriter star son Thomas Rhett and BMI's 2012 Songwriter of the Year Luke Laird all got together to hash out another hit not that long ago, but things just weren't clicking the way they'd hope. Roughstock had Akins tell us the whole story!
"That song was not even supposed to be written," Akins tells Roughstock. "I was writing with Luke Laird and Thomas Rhett. Lee wasn’t even scheduled to write with us. It was just one of those miracle days where Thomas Rhett just wasn’t feeling anything we were writing. We started two or three songs, and Thomas Rhett was like, ‘Naw, I don’t like that’ or ‘I don’t feel like writing that.’ His head just wasn’t into it that day. He said, ‘Why don’t we go get something to eat, and maybe when we come back, we can find something.’
