"I realized I had never just been out and flirted. I didn’t know how to be single," she said of the track. "A lot of times when I write a song, it’s a very specific, about a certain person, and this one’s just not. I just needed this song o represent the season of me learning to be single. I was like, ‘I need to get out and have a good time,’ which I didn’t really know how to do because I’ve been in the public eye since I was 16. But I had one little season when I got home from [appearing on] Dancing with the Stars where I would hang out and be flirty. I’ve still never kissed a boy in a bar. But the idea of it, I wrote this song about it."
Before the powerful CMT Music Awards performance, Alaina also got to mark the full-capacity comeback at the iconic Grand Ole Opry last month.
