In “The Painter,” Johnson sings:

She took chances. With every wall I built she saw a canvas. I thank God every day for how he made her. My life was black and white but she’s the painter.”

These words echo how he feels about Brandi, who he shares two daughters with. He previously told New Country 96.3:

“When I met her, I was a pretty crazy young guy and she’s helped me grow. She’s helped me become a man that I’m proud to be, and she holds down the house, and she holds down the whole fort.”
