Sugarland’s Kristian Bush joined the CMA Songwriters Series for two shows this week, playing L.A.’s House of Blues and the Musical Instrument Museum in Phoenix, Arizona alongside country music songwriting superstars Bob DiPiero, Bobby Pinson, and the legendary Whisperin’ Bill Anderson. Both nights were intimate gatherings peppered with lots of laughter, as all four men cracked wise, delivered well-honed one-liners, and told the (often hilarious) stories behind their songs before performing them live.

Kristian Bush of country music supergroup Sugarland seems to never stop working. When he’s not touring with bandmate Jennifer Nettles on the band’s popular “In Your Hands” tour or making surprise appearances with fellow label mate Canaan Smith at the Grand Ole Opry, he’s writing songs for rock bands such as legendary power-pop quartet the dB’s, whose early ‘80s output inspired a new generation of rock bands, including R.E.M.

Bush co-wrote “She Won’t Drive In The Rain Anymore” with dB’s front man Peter Holsapple, and the song marks his first release via Songs of the Architect, the Atlanta-based publishing company Bush recently created. “She Won’t Drive In The Rain Anymore” appears on The dB’s first new album in 30 years, Falling Off The Sky, which was released June 12 via Bar/None Records.

About writing the song with Bush, Holsapple exclaims, “I was fortunate enough to get to hang out a little with Kristian Bush of Sugarland. I had a song idea that I wanted to run by him, so we sat together one afternoon on his tour bus and tossed ideas around. Kristian was able to channel his muse and encourage me to finish the song that became ‘She Won’t Drive in the Rain Anymore.’ It’s probably the most different composition on the entire Falling Off The Sky album, in terms of what people have come to expect from The dB’s songwriting over the past 35-odd years. I’m incredibly grateful to call Kristian a friend, and I’m glad we got the chance to pull this song out of the hat.”

Bush replies, “Peter is by far one of America’s most natural and unique songwriters. I studied his albums over and over. In a lot of ways, those songs taught me how to write a pop song that never gave up and never gave in.

“I remember writing it and trying not to freak out, because the voice singing on the sofa across from me as we were tossing melodies and lyrics back and forth was a voice I had known since I was 14,” Bush continues. “I am convinced that the 14-year-old me locked away some dB’s melody and served it back to the man who gave it to me in the first place. I am grateful and humbled. And I am totally freaking out that there is a new dB’s album and this time, my name is in the liner notes. Dreams do come true!”
