Ovation TV’s ‘Notes from the Road’ features an interview with Gavin DeGraw, who talked about his hometown South Fallsburg, New York, offering a tour of the town. Gavin then talked about his debut single ‘I Don’t Want to Be’.
“I remembered I played the song for my brother,” DeGraw explained, “and I got to the end of the song, and he looked at me and pointed at me and said, ‘That’s your hit. That’s your first hit song right there. You got a hit song finally.’ I had written hundreds of songs prior to that and he had never said that to me.”
Watch the interview and performance of ‘I Don’t Want To Be’ at Bonefish Grill in Schaumburg, Illinois on July 14th via YouTube below.
