That's Travis Meadows slaying it on the harmonica. He's the songwriter behind hits like Jake Owen
's "What We Ain't Got
" and Dierks Bentley's "Riser
". Meadows recalled his contribution to the track during a Reddit AMA:
"I was minding my own business sitting on the couch and I got a text from Jay Joyce who produced Carrie's record. He said, what are you doing now? I said, nothing. He said, can you come over and play harmonica right now? I said, yes. I drove over to the studio, walked in and he handed me a mic. He hit play and I started jamming. He said, that was awesome, do it one more time. So I did. He said, great you're done. I was back on my couch in 45 minutes. I didn't even know who's record it was till after the fact.
On a side note, Carrie wanted to learn how to play so I gave her lessons that's a heckuva way to spend a day. She's awesome!"
