- Oh, my god! - Let's just agree to take it slow.
- The whole Jessica thing? It's not going to happen.
- You and Savana are a lot more compatible.
- That night at the party was just a red flag.

- If you want me to, I would love to help you.
Because I believe in you.
- Jessica, thank you so much for helping me with all this music.

- [LAUGHS] - [LAUGHS] - We can see if Bryant might have any feelings for me? - Yeah.
- Oh, gosh.
- But before the show, we're going to head out to California so I can look at schools.
I'm like losing sleep over that.
- But, OK, so tell me about your LSAT.

- You're going to do fine.
You studied so hard for that.
I have complete faith.
But I just - What does Kerry say? - He shuts it down.

[MUSIC PLAYING] I was in Avalon, on the run chasing the setting sun, and all I want to do is chase you chase you.
Got me hanging up my hat, 'cause you're what I got to have.
All I want to do is make you, make you my partner n crime for the rest of my life.
When I saw you, I knew I had to drop and say good bye to my outlaw.
Say goodbye to my outlaw.
- Kerry, you crushed it.
Let's take a break.
I'm going to come in there.
OK? Hey.
It sounds so good in there.
- I'm glad.
- Are you getting pumped to show everyone your song? - Heck, yeah.
- Speaking of which, I just booked a gig, and I'm going to premiere this song as a new single.
- Yes, yes.
- And I need you to come sing harmonies on it.
- OK.
I'm down.
When is it? - New Year's Eve.
- No.
[LAUGHS] I can't do it New Year's Eve, Kerry.
- What do you mean? - I am singing the national anthem for the Titans' game.
- So I'm going to replace you on harmonies on this song then.

- on every tour I ever did, ever again.
- You're going to do great without me.
- Before I get too far into this New Year's Eve show, I've got to go out to California with the wife, and she wants to kind of look at some of the California law schools, which is kind of a scary thing.
- Oh, I mean, are you thinking about going California, too? - I'm already like on the road so much - That's true, that's true.
- I don't want to spend that much time away from my - From your kid and - From my son.
- your wife.
- Right I mean, you can do music out in LA.
That could be a good thing.
- I've got kind of like a FOMO when it comes to not being in Nashville playing.
- I completely understand the nervousness of it, but you can do country music out there.
That's what love is about, you know? You got to support each other.
And she's done that for you for a long time.
There's compromise in there.
You got this.
[MUSIC PLAYING] [KNOCKING AT DOOR] [DOOR OPENS] - How are you? - Good.
- What's going on? - I was - Good to see you.

It was awesome.
- first show.
I appreciate it.
- Did you hear about New Year's Eve? - What about it? - So Kerry landed a gig.
- Oh, really? - And he's like, asked me to, you know, sing a couple songs.
- OK.
- And I thought because, you know, you're doing so awesome, and like, we've been working together anyway, maybe we could sing a song together? - Um - No? - That would that That would be cool.
I just came here to like, kind of talk to you about that.
You know, this thing with Savana, you know, she she's very important to me.
And, you know, you are very Very important to me, as well.
You've really helped me out with music and our friendship does mean a lot to me.
- Where are you going with this? - It just doesn't make Savana all that comfortable that we're like, you know, spending a lot of time together musically.
And, you know, she has hesitancy about moving forward when you and I have this friendship going on.
I want to respect Savana's wishes.
So I'm not going to be able to spend that much time with you, you know, going forward.
- So I'm sorry.
Like, just to be clear, are you saying that like, we can't be friends anymore? - Yeah.
- Now you're not like, giving up music, are you? - I don't know.
You know, you have given me a huge foundation, like, have helped me grow, and - I didn't give you anything.
You've had it all along.
All you just you just needed encouragement.
So - Well, I mean, that is what I need and you Needed and you gave that to me and more.
And that's why it's not the easiest thing to tell you that I can't see you anymore.
I just really hope you don't give up on music, because you really do have something.

So, any new love interests in your world? - I can't even hold a friendship, much less a boyfriend.
- What do you mean? - Jackson Boyd came by my house to let me know that we can't be friends anymore.
- He unfriended you in real life.
- Yeah.
I guess him and Savana are getting more serious.
And so - She says jump, and he says how high? Do you think if Savana had never come into the picture, maybe there still could have been a you and Jackson? [MUSIC - NIALL HORAN, "TOO MUCH TO ASK"] you I'm thinking of? - Guess we'll never know.
My shadow's dancing without you for the first time.
My heart is hoping you'll walk right in tonight.
And tell me there are things that you regret, 'cause if I'm being honest, I ain't over you yet.
It's all I'm asking.
Is it too much to ask? - You look good, honey.
You still got it.
Feel good? - Yeah, it felt good to be out there.
- Don't you miss it? I keep feeling like I'm going to bump into the old me.
- I know what you mean.
It sure is beautiful out there, huh? - This could be our life though.
Like, we could do this whenever.
- You really want that? - It feels pretty good right now.
- Do you think Pepperdine is the right place for you? - I mean, I felt like the energy went really well.
And the tour was so beautiful.
- I was thinking maybe it's time we We did move out here, and I supported you for a change.
- Are you serious? - Yeah, I mean - Are you kidding me? - You have sacrificed five years of your life to support me out in Nashville.
Maybe it's my turn to support you for a little while.
- I've been wanting to hear you say that for four years.
Wow.
Oh, my gosh.
It's so sweet that you're willing to move here for me.
It just shows how much you love me.
- I guess before we get ahead of ourselves, let's just wait and see what your score looks like.
And then after that, we could probably start working on logistics of how we could make it work.
[MUSIC - BEBE REXHA, "MEANT TO BE"] So won't you ride with me, ride with me - I love you.
See where this thing goes? If it's meant to be, it'll be, it'll be, baby, if it's meant to be.
We're paranoid, la-la-la-la-la, we're told to choose without a choice, la-la-la-la-la - Are you excited for the New Year's Eve party? - As a matter of fact, I ended up going to Jessica's the other day.
She asked me to sing with her at the party.
I was just like, well, about that, you know, I'd love to, but kind of rubs Savana the wrong way that I mean, that we still kind of hang out.
- Oh.
- Yeah.
She is such a good person.
She's so sweet.
And here I am just like kind of telling her, you know, I can't be your friend anymore.
It was kind of awkward.
- So you had to choose between Savana and Jessica? - Yes, pretty much.
- I mean, you know I'm Team Savana.
- Jessica has been there for me since like, the beginning of my music.
Been a big help in helping me like, be more confident.
I made sure to like, tell her, it was just like, I really want to focus on this thing with Savana right now.
And, you know, we're in a good spot.
And - Do you feel like you made the right decision? - I hope so.
