I think Aldean is from the South and turnrow tends to be a Southern term. Being from the Corn Belt (IN) have never heard that term until his song. We always called them endrows. There are places in the South that do not plant field ends for whatever reason.

You don't plant the turnrows (end of the regular rows) because you can't plow them. They would be to rough when turning. You want to be able to keep it bush-hogged or disked clean. When harvesting, especially with a cotton picker, you have to get down at the ends and clean out the doors on occasion. So you want a good clean place to do that. Also, you park your cotton trailer at the ends of the field so you can dump when full.

Bingo! We irrigated cotton with dirt ditches and siphon tubes. When it was time to pick, we would fill in the ditch, and disc the turn rows so we could turn the picker and had room to fill the trailers. I don't miss greasing those drums every day and I sure don't miss the smell of defoliant or cutting stalks two rows at a time!

Just for the record. ...from the "Taste of Country" website,

Everything about ‘Take a Little Ride, from the lyrics to the melody, sounds just like a Jason Aldean hit should. That’s exactly what the song’s three writers — Dylan Altman, Rodney Clawson and Jim McCormick — were hoping for when they turned in their demo after penning the song.

“It’s funny … I was really the only country guy in the room,” Clawson says with a smile. “Dylan’s from New Jersey and Jim grew up in New Orleans. He was actually a college professor in New Orleans when he was in his 20s. We just broke out all the little country things. I’m the guy who grew up on a farm, went to college, came back, farmed with my dad for 15 years, so I can just start listing off stuff.”

Yep. Growing up in IL they were endrows. Here in MN you hear headlands.

We always called them headlands at home here in Illinois too. I always questioned the purpose of the headlands too. I guess it made the field look more square or neater. You couldn't see the crooked rows in the field that way...LOL
