Matt Oakley Releases “Can’t Take the Dogs”

Matt Oakley knows how to do breakup songs. He puts his boot down in his new breakup anthem, “Can’t Take The Dogs,” highlighting a big issue in a lot of splits – who gets the dogs. Matt Oakley’s cinematic music video brings this song to life as he is moving on with his favorite companions.  

“I was talking to a friend about a breakup they went through. They moved out, took the dog, and left everything else,” states Oakley. “I had this song written for a while but I booked studio time to finish it later that day.”

The song is the perfect country breakup track consisting of brilliant storytelling, smooth-as-whiskey southern vocals, modern production, and man’s best friend. From Miranda Lambert’s MuttNation Foundation to Chase Rice bringing his black lab Jack out on stage, country music loves its pets as much as it loves its whiskey and backroads. Matt Oakley is now highlighting his love in song, making it known that “you can take whatever you want, but you can’t take the dogs.”
