The title track of Girl Going Nowhere
album, this was inspired by one of McBryde's Arkansas schoolteachers who once tried to discourage the singer from following her heart. She recalled to Billboard
"We were in Algebra class – and I try not to say [the teacher's] name, because I wouldn't want her to gain any fame off the song – and we were going around the room, and she asked each of us what we were going to do with lives. My answer was that I was going to move to Nashville and write songs. I was going to be on the radio, whether I was singing them or somebody else was. In front of the whole class, she looked at me and said 'That's stupid. That won't happen. You need to remember where you're from, and have a good backup plan.'"
"Through every job I've ever had, that really stuck with me," McBryde continued. "It really echoed down deep in my mind. It wasn't until recently that I remembered that Johnny Cash and Glen Campbell were both from Arkansas. She was talking out of the wrong side of her mouth. I do know where I'm from, and I'm proud to be an Arkansan and to represent country music. The words from an educator can be very uplifting – or very damaging. Most educators wouldn't say that to a kid."
