On this day in 2012, "Merry Go 'Round" started to be released to radio. On this day in 2012 I was exhausted from radio tour. I was 24. I had just written this with @shanemcanally and @joshosbornesongwriter down in Texas. I had fought like hell for this song to be my first single. Was explicitly told it was "too depressing" and "slow" for a new female artist to ever release. I was prepared to go down in flames. I knew the song connected with people because it connected with me but I never dreamed it would win a Grammy for Song of the Year and be the most successful song I've had at radio to date. Forever grateful for all of you who proved me right and made this little thing spin.
