Johnson sat down with Radio.com last year and explained that the majority of the 12 tracks on his album, From Here To Now To You, were written through the eyes of his children. That’s not to say there aren’t any love songs, though.

“I have three wonderful kids and its fun to look at the world through their eyes,” he told Radio.com. “It’s inspiring. And then I have a few love songs. It’s just usually me trying to make my wife laugh and then they end up being the songs.”

While his past few releases touched upon topics of loss, that wasn’t the case this time around. “From what I hear, this one I sound like I’m in a content place on this album.”
