Brad reveals to the Tennessean he’s never felt as vulnerable as he does dropping this track.
“I had a very dark couple of weeks in the middle of this where I felt like, “˜What are we doing here? We’ve lost our minds’” he says.
But Brad’s new out-of-the-box thinking eventually stuck thanks to some encouragement from his wife. In fact, his wife was “one of the biggest inspirations” for Brad’s new found sound.
For his new music, Brad traded in his fancy recording studio on Nashville’s Music Row for a more toned-down, organic recording process in an old farmhouse behind his home.
“It’s a big experiment”¦ Every song should, at some moment, do to you what my dog does when I say a command he doesn’t understand: His head goes sideways,” he says. “And every song should have that moment in a good way.”
Brad’s as-of-yet untitled 10th studio album drops April 9th.
