Hard as I Can

  • songfacts ®
  • This song tells the story of vowing to love a person as much as you possibly can even if you're struggling yourself. When we spoke with Joey Landreth, he told us the tune was written about his girlfriend. "It's inspired by true events in my own life and just trying to reconcile what the whole trip is about," he said. "I mean, just making sense of feelings.

    Songwriting is cathartic for me. My mediation is sitting down and writing a song and then going over it like, 'Oh! That's how I feel.' So that's a reflection of it and just trying to make sense of what love is and what it means."
