The title track of Ashley Monroe's third studio album, this was penned by Marc Beeson, Jamie Floyd and Allen Shamblinis. It was the only song on the record that Monroe didn't write, but she told People it's the one that resonated with her the most. "'The Blade' is such a special song to me," she said. "I have been on the receiving end of that pain. It actually makes me physically hurt when I sing it... but in a good way."
"I'm so thankful to the writers of that song," Monroe added. "They talked about my heartbreak in a way that I've never heard. That's hard to do."
"Kickstart My Heart" is about all the ways Motley Crue gets their blood flowing without drugs. It was inspired by their bass player Nikki Sixx, who claimed he had to be revived with a shot of adrenaline to the heart after an overdose.
The Flaming Lips' "Do You Realize??" was named in March 2009 the official Rock Song of Oklahoma. Four years later, Oklahoma's governor Mary Fallin pulled the tune as the state's official rock song in a move her office said had more to do with priorities than musical taste.
