For his third studio album, the “Whatever She’s Got” singer told Radio.com that he “really wanted to try some new things. Not intentionally go in a different direction, but explore some new territory.”
“Every album I make I try to make a snapshot of where I am at that point in my life,” Bentley told Radio.com. “I’ve found the more personal that I write, the more universal the song tends to be.”
The song, Nail recalled, was “Memphis,” and he was driving through that very city at the time. “I had three or four family members that live in the Memphis area call me immediately.”
This one picks up where his previous music video “Give Me Back My Hometown” left off, and includes some of the same cast of characters. “I love a good mystery,” Church told Radio.com.
“It’s always been important to me, when you have success, that you’re not just taking the safe path,” Church told Radio.com. “That you’re continuing to be artistic and creative and mining new ground.”
“Do you get a lot of backlash from the conservatives in the country community?” King asks. “I think I have a very diverse group of fans,” McBride replies.
“I didn’t want to do a solo project out of a dislike for Sugarland. I love that music. And yet there’s something else that I think I need to prove to myself and share something different with my fans, too.”
“A lot of times when people talk about the other No. 1s I’ve had, they’re always like, ‘Man, stop giving away all of your hits!'”
“The GRAMMYs actually heard the song and they stepped up right beside me, saying, ‘Hey, we hear you. We get it. We’re with you.”
