The Story Behind “September”~
September by Daughtry is one of the most requested songs on The Nite Lite. Find out what inspired this heartfelt song…
The popular ballad September comes from Daughtry’s second album, Leave This Town. Chris Daughtry co-wrote this song with guitarist Josh Steely. The album’s title, Leave This Town, comes from a line in the song which draws from Chris’ experiences growing up with his brother in the small North Carolina town—Lasker
Daughtry told Associated Content: “There’s a line in the song that says we knew we had to leave this town, which stems from my childhood. I knew in order to do anything big with my life I would have to leave that town that I was in. It probably had a population of 100 or so.”
Chris Daughtry explained “A lot of it is about how leaps of faith can set us free or tie us down, and how we often find heartache when we run from something and redemption when we run toward something.”
Leave This Town debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200. The bittersweet ballad’s music video features Chris Daughtry playing live and looking back at his past with bandmates bassist Josh Paul, drummer Robin Diaz, and guitarists Brian Craddock and Josh Steely. The clip was shot July 1, 2010 at the Stevens Center of the University of North Carolina School of the Arts in Winston Salem, North Carolina.
