The song is a rock and roll ode to small town America and the everyman and everywoman who live there. Written by Hoge, along with Jessi Alexander and Tommy Lee James, "Middle of America" is a highly relatable tune that reflects many a person's upbringing and highlights the fact that many of us are chasing our dreams and "trying to get by" in life, mistakes and all.
After an acoustic introduction, Will's distinct vocals are supported by piano, guitar, drums and....hand claps (as I have said before, who doesn't love those!). The melody and lyrics paint a clear picture of small town life, a picture that might even include Will and his band playing this song in a club somewhere, chasing their dreams too.
"We're lettin' our freedom ring
Chasin' these small town dreams
Doin' what our parents did
Watchin' them shake their heads
Thinkin' we've all gone crazy lately
But we know it'll be alright
It's just another night in the middle of America"
