CMT Offstage / Allison Bonaguro
You don't have to drive a truck to fall in love with Lee Brice's "I Drive Your Truck." In fact, for Kevin Bacon, it happened in a Prius. In talking to Bacon and his brother Michael about their band, the Bacon Brothers, the conversation came around to country music. "I love storytelling," Kevin said. "I love a great country song. I love that feeling in the third verse when the lyrics give you chills. When it works, it's fantastic." And then he told me about discovering Brice's new song. "One of the best songs on my iPod is 'I Drive Your Truck.' I just happened to be driving -- not my truck, but my Prius -- and I heard it, and it's just got so much going for it, including a very strong anti-war message. I love that song. When someone puts that together with the same kind of chords and the same instrumentation and the same words from the English language, but shapes it in a new way, I just love it."
