This One's for You

Album: That Girl (2014)
  • Jennifer Nettles told Billboard magazine that the sound of this That Girl cut about sensual yearning was very unique to her. "The way that I approached this whole project was with a spirit of openness," Nettles noted. "I did a lot of sitting at the piano, and seeing what would come. From a chord perspective, that song was so different for me than anything I had written before."
  • Nettles received some help from "Brave" singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles with completing the song. "I had gotten to a point where I was stuck on the chorus, and Sara was coming into town," she explained. "She came over to helped me finish it. It brings to mind Carole King a little bit."
