Hailey Whitters was just 22 years old when she co-penned the song, but Lori McKenna thinks the young songwriter is wise beyond her years. "She's one of six kids, and she's one of those kids that just gets it," McKenna told The Boot
. "That song, you know, when we got to the end of it, she had said part of the chorus that talks about, like, 'You're never going to be happy by taking someone else's away.' And that was something she had said, and I sat in the room that day just so overwhelmed by how much she got it. I don't even know if she knew how smart she was yet."
"When we get to the end of the song, it seems like it would just end on a chorus, because the chorus is so fun and all that, but we just wanted to wrap it up that way," McKenna added. "The bottom line is, everybody deserves to be happy. [Laughs.] Sometimes we overthink that. And we tried to make the song as simple as we could."
