  • This tribal drum building Natalie Hemby and Adam Hood penned ballad finds Womack recognizing the potential in a relationship with a seemingly incompatible person as, "you are the same kind of different as me."

    "Our world is so divisive," said Womack, "everyone hates somebody else... people are all angry and focused on what's wrong or different."

    "I think there's so much similar about all of us," she continued. "If we'd focus on how we all hurt, hope and want to fall in love, to take care of the people we love, we might be able help each other heal."
