Nick Jonas Previews ‘Chainsaw’ During CMT Crossroads
CMT is infamous for bringing two artists together from two different genres and allowing them to blending their sounds and songs together on Crossroads. Thomas Rhett and Nick Jonas are slated to appear together on a forthcoming episode and, thankfully, footage from the taping has appeared online featuring brand new music from Nick’s new album ‘Last Year Was Complicated’.
During the evening, Nick and Thomas put a twist on the rumored second single ‘Chainsaw’ from Nick’s record – a song that Nick has described as a remind of his relationship with his ex, Oliva Culpo:
To me, it’s about walking through the house that I went to with my ex up in Mammoth, California and reliving a lot of the relationship. The couch reminded me of her and the plates and – everything is a thing. I think that’s something a lot of people can relate to. When you shared something with somebody, it’s still painful in some way.
It’s uncertain if the version performed on Crossroads will be exact to the official track that will be found on ‘Last Year Was Complicated’, but the bluesy twang fits the somber, melancholy lyrics. We wouldn’t necessarily be mad if Nick dipped his toes into the country pool. After all, he’s been known to flirt with the genre from time to time…
Are you looking forward to ‘Chainsaw’?
