Grammy nominee JP Saxe and Grammy award winner (and current nominee) Maren Morris have teamed up to release the stunning ‘Line By Line’.
Released via Arista Records, the collaboration features emotive lyrics which were penned by JP, Maren and Jimmy Robbins (Maren Morris’s “The Bones”) in Nashville.
Maren spoke about the process of writing the song with JP and what the thought process was for the track. says: “I have always loved being contemplative of the artist vs. muse relationship in songs. The track acts as a promise that I’ll never be done writing about my muse in this life because he can’t be summed up in one song. Writing that day with JP was the most fluid, inspiring session. He’s a lyrical faucet. He threw out the line “immortalizing my sincerity” and it blew my mind. I think all in all, we wrote the whole song in an hour and immediately recorded it.”
JP also commented on writing the track with one of his favourite artists: “My first thought about this song is that it’s surreal I get to be sharing it with one of my favorite artists ever. Regarding what it’s about…as songwriters, we spend a lot of our lives trying to bottle up a feeling into a song, and often, the biggest feelings, the best ones… the complicated, detailed, messy, incredible ones… just aren’t going to fit. Line by Line is our recognition of that… of how one song just isn’t enough to capture it all, but how we’re just going to keep writing, futilely and lovingly, anyway.”
