I became obsessed with it immediately after he debuted it at Bonnaroo, and it’s a classic Romeo and Juliet-style tale about how Zach is a bad boy who will never settle down, or end up with a seemingly beautiful and perfect girl like he describes in the song.
He wants to be with her, but knows it can never be because neither he, nor anyone else in town, is good enough for the “small town smokeshow” that they’re all pining after.
He took to Twitter to share the news about the Gold certification, thanking fans for listening to the song and helping him earn it:
“THANK YOU GUYS FOR MAKING OKLAHOMA SMOKESHOW GOLD I LOVE YOU!!!”
