Story Behind Drake White's "Makin' Me Look Good Again"

Everyone wants to know the story behind the song and Drake White has obliged in a new video from Sounds Like Nashville. The Alabama native recently sat down with the outlet to share the background behind his latest single "Makin' Me Look Good Again," an ode of sorts to wife Alex. The pair has been married since 2014.

"My grandfather ... used to say 'If you see a turtle on a fence post, you know that turtle didn't get there by himself; somebody had to set him up there,'" Drake offered. "What that meant was everybody needs a little help sometimes getting up on top." Drake explained that a few years later he was leaving his father-in-law's home with wife Alex on his arm when her dad quipped, "Man she makes you look good." And right there a song was born. Sounds easy enough, huh? Watch below. See Drake perform the song, too.
