It's going to kind of press back on me a little bit. La I I. I write a song by myself on every album. And that tends to be the most honest. Because it's kind of the tug of war of me loving traveling and loving working but also really newly understanding the value of home and like putting route send somewhere. I didn't didn't really know that before the this last season of life. So it's about that it's also about. This is the first album where I wrote outside of Nashville. It was the first album that I wrote with people that weren't necessarily country songwriters our country producers. And so I kind of had this moment of panic of like. Oh my gosh if I put beat drop in this song instead of a Banjo or people are gonNA think that I'm jumping ship and That's what the line in. That song says we'll Tennessee. Be Mad at me. It's it's kind of a tug of war of all those things. Ooh Call them cool in. Tom Is one of them. It sounded though. The Sunday's stay silver Friday morning conversation with Kelsey Ballerini.

Also another great piece of advice from her was years later. I was like Hitler. How do you make friends? Now how do you know who your friends are now?
