Ring For Sale

Album: The Woman I Am (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • This humorous story of love gone bad was penned by Jim Beavers and Chris Stapleton. "A girlfriend from home is going through this as we speak," Pickler told The Hollywood Reporter. "She had asked me in the middle of her whole divorce thing what she should do with the ring and I said, 'Sell it and go do something nice for yourself; I think you have earned that right considering what he has done.' So I heard that song and I played it for her and it made her smile. So I thought, I'm going to cut this for my friend. And when I sing it, I am going to be thinking of her, even though it's written in first person."
