Hurt Somebody

Songfacts®:

  • This tormented love song was written by Shane McAnally, Mark Nesler and Matt Fleener. Though Bentley did write six of the twelve tracks on Riser, he was more open to outside material than ever before. "I think in the past, I thought I was listening for outside songs, but I realize after going through this project that I haven't," the singer said at the album's listening party. " I wrote with a lot of people, I wrote with Shane McAnally a bunch, but I never wrote anything that beat what he pitched to me. I think it all kind of gelled together."
