Album: single release only (2014)

  • Lyrics
  • This Sara Haze, Gordie Sampson and Troy Verges penned tune puts a playful spin on the familiar "somebody-done-somebody-wrong" Country song. "What first attracted me to the single was the angle," explained Bannen. "You cheated on me, you hurt me - so I'm going to make you famous. It's not just revengeful, there's a little smile and wink to it - and I love that!"
  • The song's music video was directed by London Alley's Hannah Lux Davis (Lil Wayne, Ciara) and shot in Palmdale, California. Bannen portrays the feisty heroine in the storyline alongside performance footage from her.
