Once they pave all of the grime roads
And John Deeres are dinosaurs
When the final again 40 will get bought
And younger boys don’t open doorways
When you possibly can’t hunt a white tail
And preserve what you reel in
Effectively, I hope I’m in heaven by then
No, I don’t wanna go right now however I don’t wanna dwell
Down right here at a spot that thinks that that place don’t exist
There comes a day this nation’s someplace nation don’t slot in
Hell, I hope I’m in heaven by then
“We have been on a writing retreat in Texas that we do yearly, and everyone was out on the porch. I don’t keep in mind who threw a phrase in right here or there and who didn’t, so we ended up with a bunch of writers on ‘Heaven By Then,’” Gilbert notes. “And I really like songs like that. It got here out of a dialog. A guitar ended up in HARDY’s lap, which is normally an excellent signal that it’s about to show into one thing particular. I believe all of us knew that because it was being written. It got here to life that night time.
“To have Blake Shelton and Vince Gill on the music meant a lot to me. These two introduced a lot to the desk and gave it a voice I didn’t have. We have been all in separate locations once we recorded, but it surely was a cool means for everybody to place their spin on it. They simply did what felt pure and sonically you hear that,” he concludes.
