Bulletproof

Album: Steel Magnolia (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • Steel Magnolia comprises Meghan Linsey and her boyfriend Joshua Scott Jones. After winning season two of CMT's talent show Can You Duet, the duo signed a recording contract with Big Machine Records, and released their debut single "Keep On Lovin' You" in August 2009. This Lori McKenna and Chris Tomkins penned song is a track from their self-titled debut album.
  • Linsey explained to The Boot that she later found out it was previously recorded by a friend for a currently unreleased album. "Emily West and I are actually really good friends," Meghan said. "I didn't know that she had cut that song when we went in and cut. Then someone was like, 'Oh, that's Emily West's song.' So, I texted her, 'Dude, we've cut the song that's on your record.' It was fine because we're friends. I think that should be a single for her, I love it."

  • This song is a strong, female anthem. The Boot asked Meghan if Joshua has a problem recording songs in that vein? "That was my one thing on the record that I was like, 'Man, we have to have this song," she explained. "Most of the time we're a duo. I have the one song on the record that I sing pretty much by myself, which is 'Bulletproof,' and then he has 'Glass Houses,' which he wrote and put on the record as well. We try to mix it up and give everybody something. We have a lot of female fans, so we want to give them a little balls."
