"I've been so excited about the positive reaction people have had," Andy tells The Boot of his latest single. "It's been cool to hear how everyone finds different things to connect with in the lyric. There is something in that song for everyone. I know the first time I heard 'Wanna Make You Love Me,' I felt like there was magic all through it."
Andy wanted to stray from glitz and glamour for the video, instead choosing a relaxed, realistic setting. It's not his own home you see in the clip, but he wanted the set to really look like he lives there. "That's why I put so many personal items into the set design," he explains. "I've got my own guitars laying around the house, records from my collection ... Everything from my old tape machine to my vintage thermos are in the shots. It felt like home."
'Wanna Make You Love Me' was penned by famed Nashville songwriters Bobby Pinson and Jim Collins. It's one of the few songs on Andy's upcoming album that he didn't write himself. The Washington native has been playing guitar since he was nine and writing songs since the age of 12. John Rich discovered him singing in a Mexican restaurant (in Spanish!) and signed him to a publishing deal. Andy returned the favor by co-writing one of the biggest songs of the year, 'Don't You Wanna Stay,' recorded by Jason Aldean and Kelly Clarkson.
