Forget to Forget You

Album: See You Tonight (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • This Casey Beathard and Michael Dulaney penned song finds Scotty addressing heartache, which is something new for him. Clear as Day predominantly featured happy-go-lucky songs, but McCreery wanted to tackle new themes on See You Tonight. "I've had these feelings before," he said. "Anybody who is a teenager has been there before. People relate to it and it's one of those emotions that you can't put on the back burner. It's real and it hurts. There's something about country music. Even if the song is about heartbreak, you can listen to it and try to feel better about the situation you are in."
