This is a song from Mac Powell's
sophomore country solo album, Southpaw
. The Alabama native is best known for fronting Christian rockers Third Day and was asked by Taste of Country
if the writing process is different for his Nashville records in terms of the kind of subject matter he can consider. "Absolutely," Powell replied. "Doing Christian music, it's such a serious subject, and so there's so many songs that are serious. And it's hopeful, and it's encouraging, but what's so much fun about country music is being free to write these stories, to be just kind of able to make up stories."
Powell added that this song is, "just basically a girl broke my heart, and she's coming back to town so I'm leaving kind of story."
"Well, that's not really something that's true in my life, but I get to kind of play this character, It's like writing for a movie or TV show," he continued. "I get to play this character and totally make up this story, and that's fun. And it's not that it's not done in Christian music, but it's not done as much. In country music, that's kind of what it is."
