It's late March in Nashville, and Chris Ross is due to walk into a studio in four days to record the follow-up to his acclaimed debut album, 2011's 'The Steady Stumble.' There's only one problem he's two songs short.

Ross is confident that the eight new songs he brought with him are very good, and he isn't willing to short-change his fans. He sets his internal tuner on 'receive,' adjusts his antenna and hopes the songs somehow come through.

He nervously paces while thinking out loud - 'I can write two songs in four days, I can do this,' he says. In a flash of pressure-derived inspiration, the songs arrive just in time. One of the songs, 'I Lied,' is about a man admitting mistakes in past relationships, while the other turns out to be the song selected to open the record.
