"It has a double meaning," Brantley explains to The Boot. "In my career, there's a lot of pressure. You had to move to Nashville if you were going to make it. I never really bought into it, but I agreed to take some writing appointments with some people from Warner Chappell. I had a co-write set up with a guy named John Eddie."
The Georgia native reveals the song was born from what didn't happen during their appointment. "I was on the way up to Nashville to write with him," the 28-year-old recalls. "To make a long story short, I ended up turning around and going home and canceling the appointment. We rescheduled with him, and that day we wrote about what happened the day I canceled ... It was just a real experience."
Clearly, writing about his own life works for him. "More Than Miles" is in the Top 25 and steadily climbing.
Brantley will continue his Hell on Wheels tour this Friday (Feb. 8) in Kentucky, followed by shows in West Virginia, Georgia and Tennessee. See all of his upcoming concerts here.
