Bad Boy

Album: Yet to be Titled (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • Canadian country singer Carissa Leigh penned her first US single with two of Nashville's hottest songwriters, Marty Dodson (Billy Currington's "Let Me Down Easy") and Andrew Fromm (Francesca Battistelli's "Beautiful, Beautiful"). "We were just talking about relationships," Leigh said about the song. "A girl says she wants a nice guy, but she doesn’t really want a nice guy. Every girl wants to date a bad boy, and all guys want to be the bad boy too!"
  • The song's music video was directed by Kristin Barlowe, who has also worked with Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Martina McBride, Love and Theft and Little Big Town. Leigh joked to Billboard magazine: "She really knows how to bring out the best in someone like me who doesn't act. She did a great job in making me feel natural, because I didn't feel natural at all."
