The Hardest Thing
Love. What an incredible, yet sometimes unattainable thing. So often we end up having to just say goodbye, having exhausted every fiber of strength we had in trying to keep love alive. I had this chord progression and tune in my head and while working them out, the thought of what my son was going through with his significant other came to mind. Watching him go through the process of letting go became the fuel for this song. The fact that it’s kind of a “crying in your beer” country song makes it even that much more poignant.
