The song's music video was shot in Lissie's hometown of Rock Island, Illinois. "I wanted to shoot the video at home because that's where my earliest memories of heartache come from," she said.
"I wanted someone so bad who didn't want me back, and that experience kind of shaped my approach to relationships for years to come. The song is a cautionary tale to avoid those kinds of heartbreakers, so it felt right to go home and revisit that time."
"Pretty In Pink" by Psychedelic Furs was released in 1981. Five years later, it inspired a movie of the same name starring Molly Ringwald, Andrew McCarthy and Jon Cryer. The song was remixed for the re-release to have more Pop appeal.
Kacey Musgraves originally offered "Follow Your Arrow" to her friend Katy Perry. However, Perry thought Musgraves should record the song herself as it seemed, "like something that you would totally say."
