Sometimes it takes some hype to get me to fall in love with a new artist. Sometimes all it takes is a complete bastard.
Guyton and this guy got into a fight — their last one — and this is how it ended. He told her, “Don’t make me find someone else.”
Come on. It’s like he was begging her to write a song about him.
“I can’t even believe someone would even say that,” Guyton said. “We were together for four years, and he was always so back-and-forth and unsure with me, and he was always going and finding someone else, and he was always throwing me to the wayside.
“I realized that he was not the prize, and that I was the prize. I said, ‘No more,’ and I told him to go find someone else.”
“I’m so much better than I was,” she said. “Just a better person than I was back then, and I’m so thankful.”
Which is exactly what the song is about, and it’s moving radio listeners. Guyton says fans tell her that when they hear the song, they have to pull over to the side of the road because they are crying so hard.
It even makes Guyton cry sometimes. She was moved to tears in November when she sang the song at a CMT Next Women of Country event in Nashville.
