"It was when [my family] moved to Alabama that I first heard people refer to the lottery as the "redneck 401k". I brought that idea up in a songwriting session in Nashville...and my co-writer Jon McElroy suggested it might be more fun as "Hillbilly 401k". The song came together pretty quickly though it originally had a completely different chorus that wasn't quite as hooky. We ended up going for a nursery rhyme kind-of feel with the "come on baby"s to make it ear candy!"
And the song sure is ear candy. The repetition of "money money money money" is instantly ingrained in your brain, and it takes a while to get it out of there. The song also features prominent fiddle, an instrument lacking in most mainstream country music these days. Although not an extremely relatable song, it's different, and different is definitely good when executed well, which this is. Farewell Angelina is another girl group to watch, and one that will be a force to be reckoned with in the coming months.
