Maguire explained to The Boot
why she let her sister do most of the writing on the album. "We started co-writing late in the game - I didn't even know she was writing! She was basically doing it out of boredom. The Chicks were taking a longer hiatus than we wanted to take, so we were spending our time in different ways. At that point, Natalie was gardening and hanging out with her kids and going to Hawaii a lot, and she had her agenda. And then I was doing a fiddle record in my studio, recording old fiddle tunes that I used to learn as a child. And I was trying to have another baby. And then Emily starts sending me these songs, and I'm like, 'Oh I guess this is what you were doing!' Because she had over 30 songs. Even though we talk all of the time, I wasn't aware she was in her music room turning out all of these songs. I think, in her mind, it was her way of expressing herself musically when we couldn't. When the Chicks weren't working, it was very frustrating for both of us because we needed a musical outlet. I co-wrote one or two on the record and I wrote one on my own, but I came to the table late in the game and she had so many songs and I loved them so much, it wasn't a concern of mine at all. For the next album, we will do more co-writing."
