Another Dumb Love Song

Album: Southern Girl City Lights (2017)
  • The idea for this song came to Jessie James Decker while on the road. "I had just landed in Nashville from Los Angeles," she recalled to Billboard.

    "I was headed home about ten o'clock at night. Nobody was on the road, and I just kept humming this melody to myself. I just kept saying those words over and over again. I thought 'I wonder if that has ever been written – that's just another dumb love song.' It just stuck with me, and I thought it was such a clever title.

    It also brought some emotions to me about love, and whether the other person ever thought that the song I had written was about them – or whether it was just another dumb love song."
