• Demo of the Week: “Hot Chicken” (Jeff Roach, Ryan Lafferty)

    Demo of the Week: “Hot Chicken”

    Writers: Jeff Roach, Ryan Lafferty

    Vibe: Hilarious and ridiculous, smart, catchy, entertaining

    Key lyrics: “Judging by the look in your eye / You think that I’m a pretty cool guy / Maybe the police is outside/ Baby I ain’t crazy think that you’re amazing wanna sop you up with a biscuit in the morning with some gravy.

    Could be a good fit for: KFC Ad, Florida Georgia Line (feat. Twenty One Pilots), Thomas Rhett

    X factor: On the surface, the topic is comical, but there’s something to be said for a storytelling song based on hot chicken that’s this catchy and this… romantic? Props to the writers for bringing together Twenty One Pilots- and Asher Roth-style vocals with a background banjo and country radio-ready production, all while somehow keeping the corny at bay.
