Angry All The Time

  • Lyrics
  • This is a heartbreaking ballad about a wife growing apart from her husband as they age and raise their children. They are good to each other, but aren't the same people anymore after they grow older and raise their children. Like the song says, "The reasons I can't stay don't have a thing to do with being in love."
  • Tim McGraw and Faith Hill recorded this song in 2001, and scored a #1 Country hit with their version. The next year, The Dixie Chicks had a hit with Robison's song "Travelin' Soldier." >>

  • Robison recorded this song as a duet with his wife, Kelly Willis, who is also an acclaimed singer/songwriter. This version is what got the attention of Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, who decided to cover the song. Robison and Willis, who married in 1997, released their first album together in 2013: Cheater's Game. (Here's our full Bruce Robison interview.)
