Song Lyric Sunday | “99 Years” – Josh Groban & Jennifer Nettles

SLS banner

Song Lyric Sunday was created by Helen Vahdati from This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time and author Jim Adams from A Unique Title For Me is our current guest host. For complete rules or to join in the fun, click here.

This week’s theme is  “Minutes/Hours/Days/Weeks/Months.

~~~~~~~~~~

Not the song I had in mind for this week’s theme, but it cycled through my Pandora feed earlier this week, reminding me how much I liked it… and searing itself into my brain. 😀

Bridges is the eighth studio album by Josh Groban, released on September 21, 2018. It is Groban’s first album since 2013’s All That Echoes to include original music, and he co-wrote nine of the album’s 12 tracks, including 99 Years.

Josh reflected on his own parents’ 50-year marriage as he thought about the inspiration for the lyrics for 99 Years.

“My parents are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. I think many people in my generation and younger wonder, ‘what are they thinking about, the future-future?’”

Josh realized that it worked best as a duet. After wondering who would be perfect to sing alongside him, he decided on Jennifer Nettles because of the song’s ‘accidental’ country sound.

The first video is a 2:31 cut from the story behind the making of 99 Years. A live performance with Josh and Jennifer follows.
