Songfacts®:

  • Brice wrote this cut with Nashville songwriter Jim Collins (Keith Chesney's "The Good Stuff," Carrie Underwood's "Look At Me"). Said Brice: "Jim Collins is a genius songwriter. He said, "I've got this hook, 'Don't Believe Everything You Think.'" And it just went straight to me, because I'd started thinking a lot more seriously about the future. But my girlfriend, Sara, had these episodes where she'd say, 'We are not on the same page! I'm more ready than you!' Well, I didn't want her to necessarily know when or if a proposal was coming. I'd go, 'Hush, quit being crazy! You know I love you, and I'm going to ask you. But quit messing with me. Leave me alone!' So we wrote this song and now I'm getting married."
