Brandon Lay’s new single “For My Money” is a sweet story where the guy tries to get the girl. Unfortunately, the guy we’re rooting for is lacking one important thing he needs to keep the girl… the money she thinks he has!
The song was compared to the “Fake it ‘til you make it” mantra and was described as a “champagne taste on a very beer budget.”
He sings, “So, if I fake it ‘til I make it, if I keep her long enough, maybe I can find some paper, we can really fall in love.” The upbeat “I’m gonna work for what I want” tune is a sweet gesture of a guy who’s going to give it everything he has to make the girl happy but, while listening, you get so consumed by the vibe you forget to feel sorry that the girl is completely taking advantage of our lover boy. No worries, I’m sure with his snazzy voice and positive attitude it will get him farther than the money will. The song was written by Brandon Lay and Andrew DeRoberts and is receiving a lot of positive buzz.
“This song is exactly what country radio needs- A fun lyric and an infectious groove you can’t help but crank out loud! I’ve got this one on repeat,” says Jonathan “JR” Ruppel, Program Director for WPOR Portland (ME).
Growing up in Jackson, Tennessee, a city that is halfway between two of music’s biggest cities, Lay shares that inspiration came from all sides, “You were hearing out of each ear: rock & roll and R&B to the west in Memphis, and country to the east in Nashville.”
The song will impact country radio on January 21, 2020, just in time to kick-off the Fire’t Up Tour with Brantley Gilbert, Dylan Scott, and Chase Rice on January 23, 2020, in London, Ontario. The tour is hitting over 30 different cities before ending with two nights at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado. For tickets and additional info head to www.BrandonLay.com
