  • Yearwood told Billboard magazine this Rory Lee Feek and Jamie Teachenor penned song isn't quite what you might think. "What I love about this song is that it starts with a girl going to a seedy motel, saying I've never done this before," she said. "So you have an idea of what's about to happen, but it's got an incredibly different twist."

    "I love songs that tell stories, that paint a picture," she added. "I look at songs as mini-movies, and I always put myself in as a character. I can always find a place to relate. I love the song where you can see the movie unfold in front of you."
