  • Lyrics
  • This Chris Stapleton and Lee Thomas Miller breakup anthem was the track that kicked off Frankie Ballard's El Rio LP. "[It] was the first song that we cracked out; the first that we arranged when we were getting ready to record the album," the singer told Entertainment Weekly. "And then the first song that we recorded."
  • The broken-hearted guy Ballard sings of here has a huge desire to get out of town. "Look, I've been there!" he said, laughing. "I've been busted up by some saucy minx and I've had to cut and run. This guy is heartbroken. He's been done wrong, doggonit. Somebody kicked him to the curb. And now he realizes he's got to go find something else out there that he can do and that's going to make him happy."
