"It's going to be a real nose blower," DeGraw says of "We Both Know"
Gavin DeGraw and Colbie Caillat used downtime on their recent tour to co-write a new single together. The song, titled "We Both Know," is set to appear in the upcoming Nicholas Sparks film, "Safe Haven," which will hit theaters on Valentine's Day. The latest in the Sparks saga stars Josh Duhamel and Julianne Hough and is said to be a tearjerker just like its predecessors, "Dear John" and "The Notebook."
The pair wrote the song, their first time collaborating, on a bus ride to Nashville. "It was an overnight drive on the bus and it all just kind of happened. It was awesome. It was magical, it was [sings] this magic moment," exclaimed DeGraw.
DeGraw told Billboard that the tune is set to appear at the end of the movie and assures us that it will make people cry. "It's going to be a real nose blower," he joked. He also revealed that he runs all of his potential new songs by "the hardest critic that there is" -- his brother Joey DeGraw. "I have to play everything for him. He is brutally honest. I played the song and he pointed at the phone and he goes, "That's a fucking great song." And then he said this word, "Ringtones, ringtones."
