Hip Online recently chatted with Brian McKnight and asked the singer if going into the studio takes him away from his everyday life. “I use the everyday life as fuel for the songs,” McKnight responded. “If I didn’t live I’d have nothing to write about. There is only so much imagination and living vicariously through other people you can do. After going through everything I have from splitting up and being alone and once I figured that out all these songs showed up. I don’t wear my heart on my sleeve so I put them into the songs.” Check out the entire interview here.
