Bob DiPiero told the story of the song in an interview with The Boot
: "This song actually started two years ago at a BMI Awards dinner. Sunny and I had been talking and talking about writing. That night we talked about it again. She gave me her number, and I gave her my number. Karyn and I met with Sunny some time later.
The song was written from the other woman's perspective, and nobody's setting somebody's car on fire or gouging keys into a paint job ... it's all emotions happening at that moment. That's what I love so much about this song -- it's almost like a conversation. And it's country, in a day where a lot of female artists are not so country anymore. I find that refreshing. The song's been on the charts coming up on a year, and it's just the little song that could.
Sunny is just the real thing. She is Sunny Sweeney when she wakes up, and she is Sunny Sweeney when she goes to bed. It's not like she puts on a persona. Her vocals and her writing style is that. As a writer, it really makes it easy to find a place to go musically and lyrically. I wish every writing session would go like the first Sunny Sweeney/Karyn Rochelle writing session. Everything just flowed without struggle."
