Fast rising country star Tayler Holder’s brand-new single, “Time In This Truck,” will have fans cranking up their radio with the windows rolled down all summer long. Readers of Music Mayhem are getting the first taste of the uptempo track one day early with this exclusive premiere!

Written by Andy Sheridan, Ben Williams, and Josh Mirenda, “Time In This Truck” captures the feeling of experiencing love in the fast lane and wanting to make every minute with that special someone count. Putting a new spin on a truck song, Holder’s approach finds him wanting to take the girl out of the confines of a set of wheels and whisk her away to more adventurous places.

Girl, I don’t wanna waste time in this truck / Don’t wanna take the long way / I wanna use up that left lane on the highway, those side roads and shortcuts / ‘Til we run out of stars and the sky and the suns up / I hope there ain’t five-O out tonight / ‘Cause I’m about to run these towns red lights / Every second we’re in it those minutes are flyin’ by / Girl, I don’t wanna waste time / I don’t wanna waste time in this truck,” Tayler Holder sings throughout the chorus of the song, which was produced by Sheridan and co-produced by Williams.
