In Their Words: “With its sparse arrangements and little nuances, ‘Pick Up Your Phone’ is my favorite song that I’ve ever recorded. It’s a song about disconnection. Lyrically, it sounds like a letter home. The initial inspiration came as I was driving from Arkansas to Texas after a long night out on the town. I was reflecting on a conversation I’d had with a family friend who felt I had become distant and was questioning why I never called anymore. It got me thinking about the people in my life back home and how communication is a two-way street.” — Tanner Usrey
