Songfacts®:

  • Currington told AOL how he came to record this song, which was written by Jonathan Singleton and Jim Beavers. Said Currington: "I'll never forget. A guy named Joe Fisher from our record label was taking me around to publishing meetings one day, and we'd heard about three hundred songs. He was taking me back to my truck, and he said 'Man, there's one more song that I got a couple of days ago, and it's a song called 'Don't'. It's got everything that you like.' And he started playing it, and when it was over I was in total agreement... it had that R&B feel that I love. The lyrics were saying everything that I felt many people could relate to. I asked if he could keep that song around, and he said yes, and about two weeks later, I went in and recorded the song. I sent it to the label and they loved it just as much as I did, and we decided it would be the first single."
