Free

  • songfacts ®
  • "Free" is about wanting to escape a relationship in crisis. Songwriter, Todd Harrell, told us the track was inspired by a real life experience: "That's a song that's talking about wanting to be free, wanting to get away from the craziness of a relationship that's going nowhere."
  • "Free" features on the self-titled debut album from 7dayBinge (featuring Todd Harrell of 3 Doors Down on bass, Jon Nicholson of Muzik Mafia on guitar and vocals, Kenny Olsen of Kid Rock's band on lead guitar and Shannon Boone on drums). Harrell told us most of the songs on the album are inspired by real life incidents: "All of them have some kind of truth to them. It's things I've seen or things I've done. It's definitely from life experiences, all these songs."
