Are You Leaving With Him

Album: Like We Ain't Ever (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • This song finds Bryan asking a girl why she's spending her time with a jerk when if she hooked up with him, he would treat her so much better. The track is from the singer's sixth Spring Break EP, Like We Ain't Ever. He said the cuts on each release free him up creatively. "I just started writing music without parameters…but with Spring Break, if we wanna drop a little cuss word in there or something, we don't sweat it, and that frees us up more creatively to where we don't get too bound by what's goin' on when we're in the writing room," said Bryan. "My whole idea is that 10 years down the road, you know, we've done 10 Spring Break albums and two or three of those Spring Break songs went on to become big hits that were kind of quirky songs that were spawned from it, then this whole ride has been a success."
