Drive

Album: My Universe (2016)
  • The Shires duo of Ben Earle and Crissie Rhodes wrote this song with American country star Kip Moore and his bass player Manny Medina when they were in Britain for the 2015 C2C Festival. (C2C is an UK country music festival that takes place at The O2 in London).
  • Speaking with The Sun, Ben Earle explained the meaning of the song title. "In our mind's eye, it conjures images of driving through the desert in an open-topped car, even though it was written in Crissie's flat."
  • This was released as the fourth single from My Universe. Asked by HMV.com if the album was always going to be titled My Universe, Crissie Rhodes replied:

    "It was between two songs, it was either going to be My Universe or Common Language. We felt like My Universe summed it up, it's a bold statement, we took a look at our lives and what our universe was made up of, we want the people who hear it to do the same."
