Songfacts®:

  • On Purpose is Clint Black's first studio album for a decade; the record's title comes from a line in this song.

    The singer explained why to Billboard magazine: "It represents my attitude towards life, in that it's never easy to 'go your own way', but the rewards are greater when you follow your heart. I know that's what my fans expect from me, and I hope that they hear that in the songs on this album."
