Vince GillDaughtry, the hard rock band that launched after Chris Daughtry’s American Idol win, has a new album out called Leave This Town. And on that new album is a phenomenal song called “Tennessee Line.” I say phenomenal for a few reasons. First of all, I think I hear a steel guitar. And I know I hear a fiddle in the decadently long outro.

How’d that come to be? Daughtry was writing with legendary pop star Richard Marx, who heard the song and said, “Dude, Gill would kill this song.” Kill in a good way, though. So it all came together, and all Gill asked for in return was pizza and beer.
