When it comes to the songs on the EP, and Troy’s music in general, you’re going to find a lot of truth, because that’s how he writes…even if it means interrupting his wife.

Troy shares, “For the most part, I just try to write things that are true. I love to write songs…it is one of my greatest joys in life. So, I’m always looking for ideas, or somebody will say something. My wife always gets so mad at me because she’ll say something and I’ll just be like ‘Stop. I gotta write that down.’ So, yeah, just real life, and I try to keep it as true as I can.”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch recalls the exact moment during the writing of “Thinking ‘Bout You” when they thought it could work as a collaboration, “We realized, after we got to the chorus, wait a second, this is the duet moment we’ve been looking for. We can have the girl on the other end of the line, and her come in on the second verse, and now it’s a conversation. And I do think that’s why it’s so approachable and people relate to it and those phone calls can be life changing sometimes.”

As the song is knocking on the door to the number-one spot on the country music airplay chart, MacKenzie Porter shares that she and Dustin haven’t had a lot of opportunities to perform the hit song together, “The crazy part is like, we’ve actually probably sang it separately, more than we’ve sang it together, because our touring schedules are different. So then when we do get to do it together, it’s like oh yeah this is how, this is how it’s supposed to go, I’m not supposed to sing Dustin’s first verse, which I do in my own show. It just feels so natural.”
