  • Erin from Faulkner, MdI love this song and I LOVE Kate! She has a beautiful voice, a unique sound, and a talent for writing. This song is totally one of the top five on my character mix. But I might make a correction: as "One Tree Hill" is one of my favorite shows, I have to say it's on the CW, not MTV. Love you, Kate Voegele!
