In Their Words: “I wrote this song with two heroes of mine — Matraca Berg and Jeff Hanna — at their house one cloudy morning in Nashville. The hook arrived all gift wrapped and ready to go during a conversation with a friend after a show. I asked him how he had survived a two-year stint in rural Arkansas for work, being more accustomed to the hustle and bustle of Dallas, and he shrugged his shoulders and said, ‘I guess I just made peace with the peace and quiet.’ I love it when songs find you like that. I took the idea to Matraca and Jeff and that morning the three of us made this magical little song. I love the second verse so much: I woke up with the morning raining down upon my windowpane in perfect harmony with ‘Faded Love,’ and you won’t catch me complaining. Still gets me every time I sing it!” — Drew Kennedy
