Is Everette’s ‘Slow Roll’ a Hit? Listen and Sound Off!
Everette's "Slow Roll" is a groovy, feel-good introduction to a new country duo.
Kentucky natives Brent Rupard and Anthony Olympia are just a laid-back couple of dudes who blend gritty rhythms with wavering harmonica and mesmerizing slide guitar for "Slow Roll."
"Lips were made for kissin' on / Suds were made for sippin' on / Work was made for skipping on / A day like today / I can get that Yeti ready / Fast as Richard Petty's Chevy / Come on / What you say we get all Friday hazy lazy baby," Everette sing in the first verse.
With a down-home roots vibe and relaxed, harmonizing singing style, "Slow Roll" is the perfect easy listening jam for your next road trip playlist or to spin while chilling by the lake this summer.
Plus, who doesn't love a song that name-checks Matthew McConaughey?
The track at times recalls early Brothers Osborne material — think of that duo's 2014 single, "Rum" — but Everette leave a unique mark and something to bob your head to. The song was written by Everette's Rupard, Chris Dubois and Clint Lagerberg and is just a hint at what's to come from this Broken Bow Records act.
Did You Know?: Everette's Brent Rupard and Anthony Olympia went to high school eight miles apart from each other in Bullitt County, Ky., but they didn't know it until years later! Their band name, Everette, is borrowed from George Clooney’s character in O Brother, Where Art Thou?
Everette's "Slow Roll" Lyrics:
Lips were made for kissin' on / Suds were made for sippin' on / Work was made for skipping on / A day like today / I can get that Yeti ready as fast as Richard Petty's Chevy / Come on, what ya say we get all Friday hazy lazy baby
Slow roll, roll with me / Easy like a breeze / Get high 'til them weeping willows look like palm trees / We'll just go with the flow / Floatin' gently down the stream / All our worries getting blurry / Baby, slow roll with me
Clouds have finally broken up / Sun was made for soakin' up / Boats were made for floatin' but / I can tip it in a minute if you want to / Throw your agenda out the window - smooth sailin' ride / In a daze like McConaughey, hey alright, alright, alright
Slow roll, roll with me / Easy like a breeze / Slow roll, roll with me / Easy like a breeze /
Baby kiss me, get me in that '60s hippie state of mind / Na, na, na, na, na, na na / Yeah come on
Slow roll with me
