Cold Spot

Album: Kane Brown (2016)


  • Kane Brown wrote this track with Tom Douglas and Allen Shamblin. He'd had the title in his back pocket for some time, before using it for this song. "I usually think about titles," Brown told Billboard magazine. "I'll hear somebody say something and write it down in my notes, and whenever we go into a room somebody will start naming off titles, and whoever has the best title, that's what we start writing."

    "Something like 'Cold Spot' was a title I had for a while; that was my [grandfather's] store that got shut down when a Walmart was built," he continued. "I hung out there after school all the time, so I had that as I title and we went from there."
