Mad Love

  • Canaan Smith wrote this song with Brett Beavers and Aaron Goodvin. "I've heard people say, 'Man I've got mad respect for you' or 'Man, I've got mad respect for this or that.' And I started thinking that'd be pretty cool to write a song that talks about mad love for somebody, and not just meaning that you love them to pieces, but that you love them so much that they make you mad. They rub you wrong sometimes," he explained. "They push your buttons."

    "It makes me think of Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash; they had a real fire for each other," Smith added. "If anybody had mad love it was them."
