Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry of Montgomery Gentry are proud of who they are and where they come from. As a result, many of their songs show off their country pride, perhaps none more so than their 2007 single, "What Do Ya Think About That." 

"What Do Ya Think About That" was released in July 2007 as the third single from Montgomery Gentry's Gold-certified album Some People Change. The previous two singles from the album were its title track, "Some People Change," and the number one hit "Lucky Man."

The song's narrator in "What Do Ya Think About That" reveals that people in his neighborhood have started gossiping and making fun of his country lifestyle. Instead of letting all the talk get to his head, the narrator decides to stand up for himself and his way of life, singing, "I was here first/This is my piece of dirt/And your rambling don't rattle me."

Even though the song has a "go get 'em" kind of attitude, it teaches a powerful lesson. We shouldn't worry over what other people say about us and we shouldn't judge others. As Montgomery Gentry sings in the song, "Now don't judge me and I won't judge you/Cause we all get judged in the end."

The song's official music video plays up the contrast between the judgmental gossip and the country boy. In the video, Montgomery Gentry plays country boys who live in the middle of the suburbs. While the neighbor man stares at them in horror, his wife is intrigued by their way of life.

By the end of the video, the neighbor wakes up to find a full-out country concert happening in his backyard, and his wife happens to be in attendance.

Overall, the video has a fun vibe that is the perfect match to the song itself. You can watch it below.

"What Do Ya Think About That" makes it clear that Montgomery Gentry isn't afraid to stand up for country life and country music, and we love them for it!

LYRICS BELOW

I heard it through the grapevine
My new neighbor don't like my big red barn
A '47 Ford, bullet holes in the door
Broke down motor in the front yard
I got half a mind to paint a plywood sign
And nail it up on a notty pine tree
Saying I was here first
This is my piece of dirt
And your rambling don't rattle me

Some people care about what other people think
Worry about what they say
Let a little gossip
Coming from a loose lip ruin a perfect day
Say, blah, blah, blah, just a jacking their jaws
Got a letta roll off-a my back
I don't give a dern what other people think
What do ya think about that

I wear what I want to, overalls work boots
Crank my music up loud
Like to sling a little mud in my four wheel drive
Trek it all into town

Shot a little eight ball down at the pool hall
Drink a beer with my friends
Now don't judge me and I won't judge you
Cause we all get judged in the end

Some people care about what other people think
Worry about what they say
Let a little gossip
Coming from a loose lip ruin a perfect day
Say, blah, blah, blah, just a jacking their jaws
Got a letta roll offa my back
I don't give a dern what other people think
What do ya think about that

Some people care about what other people think
Worry about what they say
Let a little gossip
Coming from a loose lip ruin a perfect day
Say, blah, blah, blah, just a jacking their jaws
Got a letta roll offa my back
I don't give a dern what other people think
What do ya think about that

Say, I don't give a damn what other people think
What do ya think about that
What do ya think about that
