Countless country singers have looked up to icons Eddie Montgomery, Rhett Akins, and Tracy Lawrence in the decades they’ve been active, but only a select group have gotten to collaborate with the legends. Up-and-comer Jordan Rowe managed to recruit all three for his recent track “10-4,” which appeared on his debut album Bad Case of the Good Ole Boy.
Rowe dropped a music video for the song last week, which offers a glimpse into the momentous studio session that culminated in “10-4.” He shared with American Songwriter, “Being in the studio with those three was super cool. To watch them be in their element, and think about [Lawrence’s] ‘Paint Me A Birmingham’ or [Montgomery’s] ‘Something To Be Proud Of,’ some of my favorite songs of all time. I kind of got to feel like I watched how those songs were made.”
Rowe offered fans a further glimpse into “10-4” with a “Behind The Song” video he shared on YouTube the day after the music video came out. Much of the song draws from Rowe’s childhood memories of sitting in his father’s police car and hearing him say “10-4” on his radio, meaning “understood.”
You can find “10-4” and the rest of Bad Case of the Good Ole Boy on your favorite streaming services now, and get to know Jordan Rowe on Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, Twitter, YouTube, and his official website!
