Kane Brown and John Legend joined forces for the television debut of their brand new collaboration, “Last Time I Say Sorry,” on Sunday’s ACM Presents: Our Country.
The performance comes just days after Brown and Legend released the co-directed music video for the song.
Ahead of their performance, Brown spoke with host Gayle King to chat about the song, revealing that he wrote the heartfelt ballad for his wife, Katelyn.
“I never want to mess up. And I just want to love you for the rest of my life and never have to tell you sorry again,” Brown explained of the song’s message. “So anytime we ever fight, we kind of play that song and listen to it and it calms both of us down.”
Brown continued to elaborate on the track saying that it “came pretty naturally” to the two superstars, who used their respective relationships to inspire the lyrics as they vow to be better men to their wives.
“Last Time I Say Sorry” was co-written by Kane Brown and John Legend with Matt McGinn and Andrew Goldstein.
