Country duo Pryor & Lee are singing about two of life’s constants, “Good Ol’ Dogs and God,” in their new song released on Friday, March 26. Throughout the song, the duo, made up of Pryor Baird and Kaleb Lee, sing of all the things in life that eventually fade away: “Old flames run out of miss me, old chrome runs out of shine, old bottles run out of whiskey, old folks run out of time,” they sing in the first verse. However, the duo then follows this up with two things in life they can always count on: “Good Ol’ Dogs and God.”
“Good Ol’ Dogs and God won’t ever let you down / They listen when you’re talkin,’ just happy you’re around / I don’t know why they love us, but they do no matter what / Two things you can count on, Good Ol’ Dogs and God,” they sing in the chorus, backed up by acoustic guitar and dobro instrumentation.
Written by Trent Fisher, Doug Johnson, Elvie Shane and Adam Wood, “Good Ol’ Dogs and God” is meant to give a positive take on life after a hard year. The duo also released an upbeat, country rockin’ tune called “Carry On,” written by Jessi Alexander, Matt Jenkins and Chase McGill.
“It’s been a tough year, but we can’t wait for everyone to hear some of the new music we have been working on,” Pryor & Lee told Sounds Like Nashville. “These new songs represent the 4-legged friends that helped get us through this last year and the mindset that will keep us going.”
Alongside the release of “Good Ol’ Dogs and God,” Pryor & Lee also revealed the official lyric video for the song, which features footage of the duo’s dogs, Winnie, Whiskey, and Remy, as well as fan-submitted photos and videos of man’s best friend.
“Good Ol’ Dogs and God” and “Carry On” follow Pryor & Lee’s debut single, “Y’allsome,” released in June 2020.
