Trace Adkins

I Left Something Turned on at Home

Composed by Billy Lawson / John Schweers

Song Review by

“Wait! Turn the car around! I left something on at home!” How many times has that been exclaimed a few miles into the family vacation? It’s usually the stove, but this time it’s Trace Adkins’ over-sexed partner. Writers Lawson and Schweers give a whole new meaning to an age-old expression, and that’s what good songwriting is. Adkins performance effectively relates the lyrics, though a variety of other male artists could make the song theirs as well.
