Interesting fact:

Bro-country is a subgenre of mainstream country music originating in the 2010s, and is influenced by 21st-century hip hop, hard rock and electronica. Bro-country songs are often about attractive young girls, the consumption of alcohol, partying, and pickup trucks.

The first use of the term was by Jody Rosen of New York magazine in an article published on August 11, 2013, in which Rosen described songs by Florida Georgia Line, particularly their debut single “Cruise“. Rosen also named Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, and Jake Owen among singers of the genre. Entertainment Weekly cited “Boys ‘Round Here” by Blake Shelton and “Ready Set Roll” by Chase Rice as other examples of bro-country. The popularity of the genre opened up a divide between the older generation of country singers and the bro-country singers which was described as “civil war” by musicians, critics and journalists.

“Life Rolls On”

People come, people go

Sometimes you win, sometimes you don’t

Either way the wind blows

You gotta love it

Ain’t gotta do it by yourself

Don’t be afraid to ask for help

Even when it hurts like hell, gotta love it

Oh yeah

 

As long as my heart’s beatin’

And these old lungs keep breathin’

The highs and the lows, yes and the no’s

Only gonna make you strong

Yeah, bruh

This world will keep turnin’

The bonfires will keep burnin’

And I don’t know what God’s thinkin’ of

But where we are is where we belong

Oh, and I know it might be alright

Might be all wrong

But life rolls on

And on and on and on

 

Drivin’ past my old house

A wreckin’ ball took it down

But I still got them memories, gotta love it

Yes, I do (Oh)

 

As long as my heart’s beatin’

And these old lungs keep breathin’

The highs and the lows, yes and the no’s

Only gonna make you strong

Yeah, bruh

This world will keep turnin’

The bonfires will keep burnin’

And I don’t know what God’s thinkin’ of

But where we are is where we belong

Oh, and I know it might be alright

Might be all wrong

But life rolls on

And on and on and on (Yeah)

 

I won’t give up on you

Please don’t give up on me

Things gonna turn out just fine

Someday all the pain

Will be gone

Life rolls (Yeah, baby)

 

As long as my heart’s beatin’ (Beatin’)

And these old lungs keep breathin’ (Breathin’)

The highs and the lows, yes and the no’s

Only gonna make you strong

Oh, and I know it might be alright

Might be all wrong

But life rolls on

And on and on and on

Life rolls on

And on and on and on

(Life rolls on)
