Rick Springfield "Light This Party Up" (Official Audio)

Rocket Science as a whole was influenced by Springfield's longstanding affection for country music, and his collaborators include J.T. Harding and Rascal Flatts' Jay DeMarcus. "It isn't a country album, " he notes. "But I like all the elements of country. Honestly, Nashville is where pop music has gone -- that's where all the great playing is and all the great hooks are coming from. And these are players that grew up listening to me and people like me, so there's mutual love."
