During an interview, Shane Smith explained his songwriting process. “I don’t like just throwing stuff out there. If I’m going to be singing about something every night, I try to make it personal, make it something I can really relate to,” Smith said. As the band’s singer, main lyricist, and songwriter, he added that he wants to sing with honest conviction. Smith finds inspiration from renowned songwriters, such as Ray Wylie Hubbard, Christ Stapleton, Hayes Carll, and Ryan Bingham.
