Canaan Smith co-wrote Jason Aldean's "Black Tears" with Tyler Hubbard from Florida Georgia Line.
The songwriter recently spoke with Broadway about how the song about strippers came about and surprisingly Canaan says he wrote the song out of sadness. Check out the interview below (or here if that doesn't work).
I totally agree Canaan! This is exactly why I frequent strip clubs! To help these young ladies feed their babies that they birthed out of wedlock after not practicing safe sex! No, but seriously. I'll pay you take your clothes off if I know the money is going to a good cause. Hey, they're offering! Here's Jason's version followed by the original from FGL.
