The song was later included on Maren Morris' debut album, Hero
. It was one of the track's' lyrics that helped her generate the record's name. She explained to Taste of Country
: "It says in the chorus of that song, 'I'm not the hero in this story.' I just think about the headspace I was in the day I wrote that song, where I'm basically having to end a relationship and be the bad guy and how far I've come since that day."
"It's really been this long journey to be able to say that I've become my own hero," Morris added. "This album really reflects every moment of that journey."
