Knocked Up

Album: Middle Class (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • This song tells the true story of an unexpected pregnancy. Back in the the mid-2000s, Presley found she was bearing a child by someone she'd only known for three months. "I was freaked out," the singer recalled to People. "I'm from a one-traffic-light town in the mountains in Kentucky, and I felt like I was bringing shame on my family."

    Presley ended up having her son, Jed. "It's crazy because it is a such a wonderful blessing to have a child," she said. "It's a gift from God, and to feel like it's going to bring shame doesn't make sense."
