‘Outfit’ By Drive-By-Truckers Might Be The Only Song You Need This Father’s Day [Video]
This Father's Day weekend, we get to celebrate good ole dad. It's a time to make sure he knows how much he means to us. Of course, it's a good time to also laugh and poke a little fun at dad's antics through the years. We can all recall advise our dads have given us through the years. One song by Drive-By-Truckers called "Outfit" is a song about exactly that, a Father's advise to his son, and it's incredible.
This song isn't new, and maybe you've heard it. It's been a favorite of mine for years, and Father's Day is the perfect time to put it on repeat. As a Father myself, this is a song I wish I were talented and wise enough to write for my children.
As parents, we all want more for our kids that what we had. We want them to be more than we could ever be. That's what this song is all about.
Listen as the Father in this song lays out lines of honest, life advice to his son about being a man, staying true to who he is, and achieving more in life than he has.
I've listened to this song probably 200 times, and I still tear up every time I listen to it.

And don't let me catch you in Kendale with a bucket of wealthy man's paint."
