I wrote this song right after I had just finished reading Waylon Jennings Biography. So I think this song sounds a bit like a Waylon song. I had an experience with an audience where I felt like they didn't give me a fair chance - they just heard that I was a "country" singer so they didn't want to listen. So I started to write this song about it. After I got started, I realized that it sounded like a break-up song, so I just went with that and then in the last verse I added in a little description of the male stoicism that prevails in our culture.
