Southern Gravity

Album: Southern Gravity (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • The title track of Sugarland multi-instrumentalist Kristian Bush's debut solo LP, he spent the best part of two years writing for the set. "I overwrote for the album," Bush told Radio.com. "The thematic connection between them has been a little bit elusive. I traditionally write about everything in life but it's all connected through me as the lens."

    "This one I chose to call Southern Gravity. It's mainly based off this interesting conversation I have as I travel. The further I get away from the South, the more the conversation turns to the South."
  • Bush sings here about a great day at the beach. "Because I live in the south, you have to always know how far and in what direction the closest beach is," he told Taste of Country Nights radio host Sam Alex.

    "It's a thinly-veiled love song, which all my songs are," Bush added.
