I'm Not One of Them

Album: Wildflower (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • This midtempo country jam finds Lauren taking a stand against a boy, who takes advantages of girls. Country singer-songwriter Sarah Johns wrote the song with Nashville tunesmiths Tom Shapiro and Tony Martin.
  • Lauren told Taste of Country about this cut: "This song takes the boy who thinks he is 'the stuff' and throws him under the bus. It tells him he's not that great. There are lots of guys out there who think they are just awesome and they hurt girls' feelings and make them feel like they're not good enough for them. This song is a good representation of that girl finally saying, 'Listen pal, you aren't good enough for me.'"
