“The song ‘By the Light of the Moon’ was written about partying in the country. I grew up in rural Missouri where we spent all of our free time riding ATVs, mudding, and hanging out by the bonfire,” said Jake Clayton. “There are tons of songs about having fun in the bright sunshine, but I wanted to write one about having fun in the moonlight. The song is also the title track of my new album.”
