asked Ashley McBryde what made her decide to approach penning a love song as a scandalous kind of love. She replied:
"It came from me not liking love songs. Love songs are all about how I'll move a mountain for you and I'll never hurt your feelings. I've never been given a mountain, and if you love me, you should hurt my feelings sometimes. If I walk outside looking ugly in that shirt, you don't love me if you don't hurt my feelings a little bit and tell me. I wanted something that people could actually believe when they hear it.
You have the most fun, and love is best, when it's just wrong enough to feel good. Everybody thinks this is a cheating song, but that kind of love is possible in a very committed relationship. My stepfather still shows my mother off; he's proud to walk through the door with her as if it would be a scandal. It should feel wrong, but it should be right."
