“I wrote the song out when I was sitting on a tour bus; I was on the road with Adam Lambert. I had the lyrics and the melody, but the intro was different; it had a heavy riff originally, bit it didn’t really fit the song. I changed it around, and it became more country.
“I played it for the Nashville guys, and they added an amazing bed of music to it. Dan Dugmore is such an unbelievable lap steel player. The song definitely feels better being country instead of this big ‘rahhhh!’ rock track. Lyrically, it fits better with the softer feel.
“I’ve been listening to country since I was about 15. I love the Rascal Flatts and Keith Urban. One of the things I like about country is how it’s always about telling great stories, and the quality of the music is first-rate. Country guitar players, too, are incredible – Brad Paisley is awesome.”
