This bluesy rock waltz was co-written by Cale Mills, who is an Arkansas friend of Allen. Mills accompanied his buddy on his audition for American Idol and is now a member of the "Idol" champ's band. Allen and Dr. Dre/Eminem associate Mike Elizondo also have writing credits on the track.
Allen told MTV News that he was so thrilled with this song, that he dropped "From the Ashes" - a track hyped to journalists in an early album preview - to make room for this tune. "It's not that I didn't like ['From the Ashes']. For me, I liked 'Is It Over' [more], and it was either/or." Allen said.
