This power ballad is Heidi Newfield's first single for Sidewalk Records after signing with the label in April 2012. The song was penned by Nashville songwriter Jeffrey Steele ("What Hurts The Most
") and Jeremy Popoff, who is guitarist for the band Lit. Originally the song was first put "on hold" for Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, but when it came back up for grabs, Newfield jumped at the chance to record it. "I knew the moment I heard 'Why'd You Have To Be So Good,' that it was mine," said the country songstress. "It's one of those songs that said everything I've been feeling and it kinda gets right to it. It's about losing someone who has perhaps been a big impact on your life and given you faith in yourself. If you've ever lost anyone, it kinda hits you where you live."
