Music has been one thing that has gotten us through quarantine and we’ve gained a whole new appreciation for. It’s been there through the good and the bad times. It’s been there when we’ve had hard days and good days.
It’s just always there. It can articulate the things you want to say and can’t. But it can also house your biggest secrets.
That’s part of the reason that I love a good country song. I believe that country music can allow you to vent your secrets, but also keep them close to your heart – because you just sing along and it says the words that you needed to say.
“If I didn’t love you I’d be good by now / I’d be better than barely, getting by somehow / Yeah, it would be easy not to miss you,” the duo sings. “Wonder about who’s with you / Turn the want you off / Whenever I want to / If I didn’t love you, if I didn’t love you.”
“We were pretty close to finishing up this album, but this song came in and we knew we had to record it. I went ahead and put my vocals down while we asked Carrie in the meantime,” Aldean said in a press statement. “Luckily she loved the song and it was kind of like a rocket from there. She did her thing like only Carrie can…and I don’t know how, but she made it sound even better than what we expected. It’s a really special song to start this album.”
“If I Didn’t Love You,” co-written by Kurt Allison, Tully Kennedy, John Morgan, and Lydia Vaughan, was produced by Michael Knox.
What do you think of the song? Love it? Hate it? Let us know.
