Loving Me Back

Album: Pawn Shop (2016)
  • This traditional-sounding slow ballad features Lee Ann Womack's bluegrass-country voice. "We were in the studio recording that, and we thought to ourselves, we wanted to record a really embedded-in-the-roots country song," John Osborne recalled to The Boot. "And so, we finished recording it, and we thought it was really good, but it felt like it was missing one extra thing that just made it spectacular. At the time, [getting Womack on the song] seemed like a wild idea."

    Womack immediately agreed to lay down some vocals for the siblings. "We just idolize her," John Osborne said. "She's country music royalty, and she's one of the greats that will forever be. It was definitely, out of all the things we will achieve in our careers, that was one of the bucket list things."
  • The special "something worth loving that's loving me back" that is being sung of here is not a woman. It becomes clear after closely listening to the lyrics, that the song is in fact a tribute to music.
