“I wrote ‘Country, Boy’ with Carlton Anderson and Jacob Powell. We’re all from different parts of the country, but cut from the same cloth,” Gallaher said of the tune. “‘Country, Boy’ is about character, values, and treating people well. It’s a lifestyle. It’s not rooted in material things. That’s what it’s all about.”
“Country, Boy” is Gallaher’s first release of 2022. In 2021, he delivered his debut EP Every Small Town, which was praised by press and fans alike. Sounds Like Nashville praised the project as containing “highly relatable stories and themes” calling Gallaher “a promising star in the format” while American Songwriter has declared Gallaher as an artist possessing “an authenticity that shines through.”
