We All Carry Something

Album: Never Gets Old (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • This thought-provoking track finds Joe Nichols communicating a strong message. He told Billboard magazine:

    "I can understand where this would be a little bit scary for some people, but this album had to have this song on there to be one of those deep moments. The song, to me, is a message that rings completely true for me. I'm sure it does for a lot of people. But, you never know what somebody is dragging around with them, what kind of pain they are going through, or the experiences they've had that makes them who they are. The last verse - about the guy who carried the cross up that hill for all of us. It's a really powerful message."
