After the incredible success of Bridges' 2015 debut album Coming Home, people were eager to label him "the new Sam Cooke". On his 2018 follow-up Good Thing, Bridges is breaking free of that label and proving he can't be put in a musical box. On the album's last song "Georgia to Texas" Bridges chronicles some of his origin story. He grew up in Forth Worth and went to a predominantly white school where he didn't fit in with some of the other black students. We talk about how he discovered his own identity through dance, hear him cover the Ginuwine song "Pony" and Bridges shares why he's written songs inspired by his mom Lisa on both of his albums.
