why dont you stay im down on my knees
Hear the story behind this song here! Here s the Story Bedhind the hit Sugarland song Stay. Stay was the most-watched video on CMT. com in 2007. In an interview with CMT (Country Music Television),Jennifer Nettles explained that she wrote the song in 2003, and it was inspired by Reba McEntire s Whoever s in New England, which is from the perspective of a wife whose husband is cheating on her. Nettles wanted to write from the perspective of the two people doing the cheating. Said Nettles: Even though the person who is cheating might think he or she is getting away with something, they know they aren t living their highest truth, and they wouldn t be in the situation if they were just happy-go-lucky in the first place. Nobody is happy in this situation. This was a very emotional song for Nettles, and it came together quickly. She told CMT: It was just in a couple of sittings on my couch, she explains.
And once the first line came, I ve been sitting here staring at the clock on the wall. I ve been laying here, praying she won t call, the story just unfolded. Stay has racked up numerous awards for Sugarland and Jennifer Nettles, as a writer. Most notable has been at the 51st Grammy Awards where it won Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal and Best Country Song. At the 2008 ACM Awards it won two awards for Song of the Year and Single of the Year. At the 2008 CMA Awards it won Song of the Year and at the 2008 CMT Music Awards it won Duo Video of the Year. Kristian Bush tells us that Nettles didn t have much confidence in this song. She squirreled it away, like she didn t think it was very good, he said. Once he convinced her to let him hear the song, she played it for Bush and he loved it. The song became the first Sugarland track that was written by just one member.
It was kind of fun, Kristian said. She s a great writer, and people didn t really know that, they just associated her with singing, because they didn t really know her previous career. It was fun to help her redefine that for herself. The duo tried recording what Kristian Bush calls a Black Crowes version of this song, and then a version with an orchestra and a huge chorus before deciding that the song worked best with just the two of them performing on the track in a simple arrangement. It was released in September 2007 as the fourth and final single from their album Enjoy the Ride. Stay was certified Gold by the RIAA on February 21, 2008. It was later Sugarland s first single to earn a Platinum certification on March 24, 2009. It has sold 1,960,000 copies as of April 2013.
