Troy Gentry is the lead vocalist on this song about learning from one's own song lyrics and taking life at a slower pace.
Troy Gentry told CMT News that he initially connected with this song written by Clint Daniels and Tommy Karlas musically, then it hit home on a personal level. He explained: "When I first heard the demo, it had an old James Taylor kind of feel to it and vibe, and I got locked into the song and to the music. And then as I listened to it more, the first half of the song was reminding me of me, you know, getting older, and having a family, and raising a kid." Gentry added that the song also makes him think about the stage he's at in life and about having the freedom to be able to do what he does for a living.
"Lean On" was originally sent by Major Lazer to both Rihanna and Nicki Minaj's camps as a slower reggae track. After both parties rejected the tune, Major Lazer recruited Danish singer MØ to supply vocals and recorded it themselves.
If counterpoint and polyrhythms are your thing, you might love these guys. Even by Progressive Rock standards, they were one of the most intricate bands of the '70s. Then their lead singer gave us Bon Jovi.
