What can you tell us about “Miss You?” That’s another one of my favorites from the record. That’s awesome. “Miss You” is a song that was inspired by my father, who was a World War II vet. He passed away four years ago. Just the stories he used to tell me all the time… every June 6th he would call and tell me a new story about Omaha Beach. He was at D-Day, June 6th, 1944. He was basically Tom Hanks’ character in “Saving Private Ryan” — he was one of the first ones on the beach. It was a pretty cool part of my life to understand those stories from my dad. The nice thing about it is that I have those memories now, and I figured I would put it in a song. So yeah, that’s one of my favorites as well.

Happy Veteran's Day:
