We take you behind the scenes and explore the making of one of our favorite tunes with The Song Remembers When…
Brett Eldredge debuted his song “The Long Way” while he was on tour with Luke Bryan in 2017. And, he knew he had a hit from the reaction from the fans out on the road.
The song was co-written with Matt Rogers. And, Brett said that it was Matt who brought the idea to the table – the concept of taking the long way in an attempt to get to know someone better.
It was a love song that Brett felt it was deeper than anything he had written before. He loved the idea of wanting to know everything about someone, having a conversation face-to-face and really dig in deep. He felt that that kind of interaction is lost today. It’s something that his grandparents and parents did and he felt this song captured that sentiment.
In 2018, the song reached inside the Top 5, and it’s this week’s The Song Remembers When – Brett Eldredge and “The Long Way.”
