It's Your Move

Album: New Lane Road (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • Josh Kelley was inspired to write this song during a difficult moment early on in his marriage with actress Katherine Heigl. "It was like one of those fights, an all-end-all fight, where you have to decide whether you're going to remain in this story or not," he shared. "And, luckily, we love each other, we're best friends, and we came out of it on top, but it was a big eye-opener for us."

    "It's a very vulnerable song," Kelley added." "It's very honest."
  • Katherine Heigl co-stars in the video with Kelley. The clip, which reflects the tense emotional battle the couple faced, also marked her directorial debut.
