Easy Love

Album: I'm a Fire (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • David Nail wrote this I'm a Fire track with Lee Thomas Miller (Trace Adkins' "You're Gonna Miss This," Brad Paisley's "I'm Still A Guy"). "'Easy Love' was a song that I had written the verses for about two or three weeks; I knew that we were coming up on the last sessions to record," said the singer.

    "It was kinda referenced by my wife that, they always say that when you find the right one, that it can kinda be effortless, and that's what I wanted the song to be about," Nail added. "We've got an easy love, it's just like when it was new and starting out, and you couldn't piss the other person off. You could do no wrong."
  • Nail explained that he wanted to take a slightly different angle with the track. "You don't really hear that many up-tempo love songs, or at least I don't," he observed. "And I sure as heck haven't recorded any. It was probably the most difficult one to capture, recording-wise, of any of the songs. We spent the most time on it. But that probably has something to do with the fact that I wrote it, and wanted to make sure that it was great."
