One of the many fun aspects of falling in love is all the little things you find so adorable about your new best friend (that you want to spend just about every waking minute with)! Three minutes wasn’t nearly long enough to go through the list of adorable about my now wife Sadie! This was the first song I wrote for her and about her.
It was just 2 months before our wedding. I sat down one day and started to think about all the little things about my fiancé that made me smile. This was probably one of the quickest writes I’ve ever done. I found some happy sounding chords and added a peppy tempo and as they like to say in Nashville, all you need is 3 chords and the truth and you’ve got yourself a song! lol
The only other thing I can say about the actual writing of this song is that it’s the first “bluegrassy” song I’ve ever written. Is it because Sadie cut a bluegrass record or just because bluegrass sounds so happy? Beats me! I will say that the energy of this song does match the very positive energy of my sweet wife, Sadie! If you’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting her, you know what I’m talking about!
And that’s The Story Behind The Song: Sweet Sadie
