Break The Spell

Album: Break The Spell (2011)
  • The title track of Daughtry's third studio album finds frontman Chris Daughtry singing about how he got serious with a girl called Deanna. They ended up getting married on November 11, 2000 and she is now the mother of his three kids plus a stepdaughter from her earlier marriage. "When I was dating my wife, it wasn't something I was looking for," Daughtry told Jam! Music: "I had just gotten out of a long relationship, I was not wanting anything, and then you get sucked into this and you're like, 'I can't break free of it.' And so I kind of went back to a lot of that on writing this record. We've been married 11 years now. Reflecting on those times, it's all new, and you're all smitten, and it's these exaggerated feelings of maybe it's not reality, maybe it's so new that you can't see past that. And a lot of that stuff went into this record."
  • Chris Daughtry penned the song with American songwriter and producer Dave Bassett, whose other credits include Javier Colon's "Stitch By Stitch," which was the winner's song of the first ever American series of The Voice.
