This ballad was inspired by the old songs that vocalist Cody Carson's parents used to sing. "My mom and Dad used to be in a band together, and they would end one of their sets with their arrangement of a medley of patriotic songs, which ended with an incredibly powerful rendition of 'God Bless America
.'" he explained to MTV News. "The ending gave me goosebumps so intense that I can't describe the feeling and will never forget that."
"I called my mom late at night while in the studio and arranged the end of 'Miss Mysterious' with her to mimic the end of their medley," Carson continued, "and I am so happy with how that came out."
