One True Thing

Album: Sweet and Wild (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • Jewel (from her website): "This is a rocker. Theme is finding someone you can believe in and hanging on. We did a cool treatment in the first chorus, where instead of building into an even bigger chorus, we do the opposite and drop everything out except acoustic guitar and my voice. It creates a dramatic and unexpected effect."
  • Brett James, who helped pen the Carrie Underwood chart-topper "Jesus, Take The Wheel," co-wrote the track with Jewel.
