Big Love

Songfacts®:

  • Mick Hucknall was raised single-handedly by his father Reg, after his mother walked out on the family when he was three. It was a huge blow to the singer when his dad passed away. "When I lost my dad in 2009, I could have lost everything," Hucknall reflected to The Daily Telegraph. "I didn't have that traditional family support structure. Luckily for me, I did have my wife and daughter, my new family. I had to go through a learning process, though, finding out what a traditional family felt like. And that experience has been so rewarding that I've tried to express it in songs like 'Big Love.'"
