Hear Dillon Carmichael's Sweet New Song 'I Do For You'

Dillon Carmichael's character in his brand-new song "I Do For You" must really like his bride-to-be. He's a good ole boy, but he suddenly doesn't mind attending weddings, sitting on a front pew at church and splurging for a hotel room with a hot tub in it because he's met the one.

As fans of Carmichael's breakthrough 2018 album Hell on an Angel can attest, the Kentucky native tells compelling stories with equal parts Southern rock grit and honky-tonk earnestness. This track finds him sticking with what works.

Country music is a family affair for Carmichael. John Michael Montgomery and Eddie from Montgomery Gentry are uncles from his mom's side of the family. Carmichael represents a talented, new generation alongside John Michael's son Walker.

"I Do For You" Lyrics

I don't take phone calls when I'm fishing
I don't do weddings and I don't do dishes
I'm not gonna sit in the front pew
I don't go to the mall on Saturday
I never felt the call to spend my time that way
But I'm proud to say I do for you

Get a real job
Move across town
Stop at one beer
Grow up and settle down
Ain't it strange how all the things I'd never do
I do for you

I ain't the kind of guy to take a week off
Drive up the coast just to watch some leaves fall
Or spend money on a hot tub hotel room
I never thought I'd go for candles by the bathtub
Roses on the bed or thirty-minute back rubs
But I'm proud to say I do for you

Get a real job
Move across town
Stop at one beer
Grow up and settle down
Ain't it strange how all the things I'd never do
I do for you

Trim my beard up
Put a suit on
Pick a preacher
Pick a love song
Never thought I'd see the day I'd say "I do"
But I do for you
I do for you
