In Love With A Girl

Album: Gavin DeGraw (2008)
Charted: 24


  • DeGraw on this song about the security of being in a relationship: "It's about being with someone who you feel confident in, who feels confident in you, who knows you really well and loves you for what you are."
  • Actress Kristin Cavallari stars as DeGraw's love interest in the music video. The Laguna Beach star plays a Wal-Mart employee who plays around with DeGraw after work.
  • Much of the album is about the ups and downs of being in love. However DeGraw denied the songs were about one particular girl. He said: "Just to set the record straight, this album isn't about one girl. It's about different relationships, my mindset in those relationships and just a poetic reflection of the stuff I've gone through." (quotes from Music Remedy)
