In Their Words: “I wrote this song with my friends, Danny Myrick (‘She’s Country,’ Jason Aldean) and Megan Linville Myrick. The three of us always have a lot to connect over, having grown up in similar environments. So when we get together, the conversation always goes deep.

“‘House of Bones’ didn’t develop on the first go around. In fact, it was a different song entirely when we wrapped up our first three-hour writing session. It wasn’t until months later that we went back to the drawing board. We all felt unsettled about the song, like it wanted to tell a different story. So we went into a darker place and tried to get comfortable there. We channeled our mistakes, our regrets, losses, and death. I’m so glad we didn’t give up on ‘House of Bones.’ It’s such an authentic track, and I think it channels and exposes some of the regrets I’ve held onto from the past. It’s healing to let it out. Somehow that takes away the power of the negative energy surrounding those memories, and I’m so honored and grateful that my co-writers were able to share that space with me.” — Sarah Peacock
