Originally from Hendersonville, North Carolina, Canaan Cox grew up in a musical family with some of his earliest memories surrounding his grandmother playing classical piano with him at a young age. His mother was in a band where he would sometimes sing along. At the age of 9, he picked up a mandolin and learned to play. Cox earned a degree in Musical Theatre from Catawba College in Salisbury, North Carolina.
In a press release, Canaan Cox talks about the new single,
“Writing this song came to me, literally, as it was happening. In the middle of the fight that ended my last relationship, I asked her if she still loved me and before she answered, I told her I didn’t want to know. Soon as I said that, I grabbed a pen, paper, and wrote down, ‘If you don’t love me, lie.’ She didn’t find it funny but I’m so thankful for the argument. This song is full of truth with little gems hidden within the story.”
“Lie” was completely written by Cox and co-produced with Matt McClure, the vocals for “Lie” were recorded at Hit Music Studios in North Carolina. The single will serve as the perfect introduction of Cox’s artistry with its gripping storytelling, unique acoustic guitar riff, and great drum track.
