Michael Ray must have wondered why Old Dominion didn't cut "One That Got Away," but Josh Osborne explained that this doesn't mean it isn't a great song. He told The Boot
it was simply because the track didn't fit properly on Old Dominion's 2019 self-titled album.
Osborne added that Ray was put off by it being a secondhand song; he went with his instinct and said, "Oh, wow, that's a hit song. I could do this, and my voice would sound cool on this."
