Throughout the song, Adkins praises the woman’s physical attributes, particularly her curves, singing, “Said, ‘Damn, girl, you make me wanna write a song / Sit you down, I’ll sing it to you all night long / I’ve had a little too much to drink / But that’s what I do, I sing / And if you’re lucky, I might sing along.'”
Despite some criticism over the years for objectifying women, Adkins has defended the song as being about celebrating the confidence and sex appeal of women of all shapes and sizes.
In an interview with CMT, Adkins said, “I don’t think there’s anything wrong with celebrating somebody who feels good about themselves, who’s got confidence and exhibits sex appeal. I don’t see anything wrong with that at all.”
Adkins also noted that the song was inspired by real-life experiences, saying, “I’ve seen girls like that in bars before, and they know they’re hot stuff. They carry themselves in a way that says, ‘Hey, look at me.’ It’s not just their physical appearance, it’s the attitude that goes along with it.”
Overall, “Honky Tonk Badonkadonk” is a song about celebrating confidence, sex appeal, and self-love.
