Paslay sings here of a damaged woman who has been so let down in previous relationships that she is unable to fully give herself to another man. He originally penned the ballad with former Stealing Angels member (and John Wayne granddaughter) Jennifer Wayne for someone else. "We initially were trying to write a song for George Strait, because he had just announced that he was doing the Cowboy Rides Away Tour
," Paslay told Country Music Chat
. "And Jen Wayne's grandfather is John Wayne, so she knows a lot about cowboys. So we were trying to just write that song, and we didn't quite have it."
"And in the midst, like songwriters do, of writing a song, just cutting up and small talk and this and that, and I think I said, you know, 'She don't love you,' or she said, 'She don't love you,' and I said, 'Yeah, she's just lonely,'" he added. "Just kind of joking around or something. Forty-five minutes later, we had written 'She Don't Love You."
