The song paints a vivid picture of a good ole boy who's perfectly content staying true to his roots.

The essence of "Set In My Ruts" is captured perfectly in Cody's own words: "I think, sometimes, when everyone has something to say about how something should be done, it's easy to lose sight of yourself and who you truly are. I hope listeners hear 'Set In My Ruts' and are encouraged to forge their own path...I wanted to create an anthem for those who, like me, have a 'bad habit of being right when we're wrong.' It's about embracing who you are, flaws and all."

This song is an anthem for the unapologetic, for those who embrace their identity, imperfections and all. The gritty authenticity in Hibbard's voice, combined with the compelling storytelling and powerful message, makes "Set In My Ruts" a standout track. It's a celebration of individuality and a reminder to stay true to oneself, no matter what.

"'Set In My Ruts' was inspired by the unsolicited advice us artists often get on how to write a song, or approach our career and industry,” said Hibbard of the tune. “Coming from the pipeline industry, you would never tell someone how to weld, lay pipe, or work. The music industry is the only industry where that seems to fly. While some of the advice is great, and super helpful, 'Set In My Ruts' is my way of voicing my plans to do things on my terms. If I’m wrong, then that’s on me - but at least I’m staying true to myself.”

In a genre often saturated with themes of heartbreak and loss, Cody Hibbard's "Set In My Ruts" offers a refreshing take on self-acceptance and resilience. It's a track that resonates deeply, encouraging listeners to embrace their quirks and forge their own paths. Whether you're a long-time fan or a newcomer to Cody Hibbard's music, "Set In My Ruts" is a song that demands to be heard.
