The second single from Casey James's self-titled debut album was penned by Nashville songwriters Lee Thomas Miller, Tom Shapiro and Neil Thrasher. The season nine American Idol
alumni told The Boot
that the first time he heard the demo, he loved everything about it. "The song really jumped out at me," he said. "Even the way that the song is presented. The title of the track, the syncopation of lyrics and lyrics themselves - everything about it is very standout. Plus the idea of the song is so relatable. Who hasn't been in the situation where their pride has gotten them in trouble? Maybe it's a case where they don't want to break down and lose that pride to make a situation right. The whole thing is just great and I love it."
