Album: Farmer's Daughter (2010)
  • Born and raised in rural North West Ohio, Bowersox began her musical journey at the age of 10 when she started to perform her original songs around town in local bars, festivals and charity functions. At 17, she moved to Chicago, performing in venues ranging from subway platforms to the House Of Blues. In 2006, the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs chose Bowersox to represent Chicago folk music in "Experience Chicago," in Birmingham, England, as part of their Sister Cities program. The following year saw the singer embarking on a month-long, independent Small Cafe tour, including Ankara, Istanbul and Oaxaca, Mexico. After becoming a single mother in 2009, Bowersox successfully tried out for American Idol and went on to place second. After finishing up the 2010 American Idol Live Tour, Bowersox headed to New Jersey to record her debut album, Farmer's Daughter. This break-up ballad is a track from the disc.
  • This song is just one of two tracks on Farmer's Daughter that Bowersox did not write herself, instead it was penned by former "Idol" judge Kara DioGuardi and Nickelback's Chad Kroeger.
