was just 20 years old when he wrote this song, which he composed with his producer Jamie Houston and the Nashville songwriter Wayne Kirkpatrick. "It's written from the standpoint of this lady who's lost her husband or loved one," Crouse told us. "So what she does is she puts a red dress on, because that's when he had told her she was the prettiest. Whenever they went out on dates, that's what she wore. She wore this dress, because he loved it. So now that he's gone, when she's alone, she puts on the red dress."
Crouse drew inspiration for the song from a friend whose first marriage went sour.
