  • Lyrics
  • The only song on Ashley McBryde's Girl Going Nowhere album that she wrote solo, this track is about the singer's longtime friend, guitarist and roommate, Andrew Sovine. McBryde told NPR that she penned the tune in the kitchen after having to deal with some of Sovine's messes.

    "I had gotten home before him and asked when he was gonna get to the house, and he texted and said he wasn't coming home that night. I thought, 'Well, I'll drink by myself,'" she recalled. "I reached up and grabbed my bottle of Elijah Craig [bourbon], and there wasn't as much in it. He'd been drinking my whiskey without asking. Then I looked at my house and my life. It was been a wreck since Andrew Sovine had moved in with me. I thought I would just kinda vent and complain about it. Through doing that, I [realized], 'Man, that is my absolute best friend in this whole wide world.'"
