In Their Words: “People often ask me about the songwriting process, how to make a record etc., and I will forever tell the story of ‘All the Money in the World’ to these questions. I wrote this song in 2019 with my friend Dave Barnes. We were just having fun trying to write a classic R&B slow jam. It was written WAY slower than it is on the record. We were exploring parts of my voice I don’t usually put to use. I also grew up in Memphis, but had never really stretched towards any of the classic soul songwriting. We wrote this song, I liked it, but I thought it didn’t really fit the other things I was working on, so I shelved it. In preparation for this album, the band came over monthly to play through songs…I made a list of songs like this one that I had shelved, and showed them to the band just in case they saw a diamond in the rough. I played this for them, then they started playing along and sped it way up, and helped arrange the post chorus gang vocals of ‘all the money’ and the song immediately changed from a random B-side to a front-runner for the record. When we finally recorded it, the room became electric, especially with dual keys parts, Ian on organ and Nate on the Wurlitzer. I had as much fun singing this song as any I have ever recorded. It’s always a joy to find a part of yourself creatively that you didn’t know existed.” — Drew Holcomb
