After completing his touring schedule with Crossfade at the end of 2007, Ed Sloan
, the vocalist of the South Carolina melodic-rockers, arrived home in a funk. He told us: "I kind of lost my way a little bit. Music turned its back on me a little bit, or I turned my back on music. I got tired, I didn't want to do it, because the industry was down and we left our label. I didn't know what we were going to do. So for like a year I didn't use music as my outlet. I just kind of stayed by myself and loathed my own misery." The following year, Crossfade were dropped by their record label, leaving their frontman devastated and the band inactive throughout 2008. Sloan eventually realized that he had to pull himself out of his depression and let everybody know that he was still the same person he used to be. "Prove You Wrong" came out of this realization. Said Sloan: "I finally got out of my funk and realized that I was bringing a lot of people down, so I decided I'd write a song about it and let everybody know that I was going to prove them wrong and that everything's going to be all right in the end."
