  • Lyrics
  • Ashley McBryde's breakout single, this was the singer's debut entry in the Top 50 of the Billboard country airplay chart. It was also named one of the 54 Best Songs of 2017 by the New York Times.
  • The song was penned after McBryde and her co-writers Jesse Rice and Nicolette Hayford decided to get to know each other better and share some worst day tales. It was inspired by a real life bad-day story that happened to Jesse Rice.

    "I was leaving Atlanta... and as [my car] kind of pooped out, I took this exit, and it was a place place called Dahlonega," McBryde recalled to The Boot Rice telling them, "and I see this bar called the Crimson Moon, so I just pulled in."

    Rice realized that Shawn Mullins (best known for 1998 hit "Lullaby") was playing inside the bar. So he decided to stay and ended up meeting his future his wife there.

    "That's what you do with the worst day ever," McBryde told The Boot. "You flip it on its back. You raise your glass."
