Jacob Bryant’s new single “Bring You Back” holds special meaning to the country singer. Penned by Wyatt McCubbin and Carson Chamberlain, the heartbreaking tune tells the story of a man struggling after an important person in his life dies. The loss in the song was all too real for the Georgia native, whose mother died in 2010.
The singer immediately gravitated to the song after McCubbin sent it to him. He says listeners can relate to "Bring You Back" in many ways, whether reflecting on a lover that left them or someone who passed away.
“The lyric for me, personally, connected with my mom's passing and dealing with that,” Bryant tells Billboard over the phone. “There is a lyric in there, ‘Just another long lost prayer,’ that resonates with me. At the end of the day, you can pray all you want to, but there's nothing that's going to bring back somebody that's unfortunately passed away. I've [said] that prayer: ‘God, let me talk to her one more time. Let me at least say goodbye.’”
