A "red eye" is an overnight flight, something Grammer got very familiar with when he was touring. "'Red Eye' is about getting over the hump when nobody knows who you are, nobody cares, and you really just have to hit each major city in this country so many times," he said in our interview
. "And the only way to really do that, to go from city to city to city every single day, is to play a show in the city that you're in, and then get on the plane and sleep, and sleep on the plane while it flies through the night to the next city. And that gets pretty intense."
