Have you ever had to make a hugely important decision in your life, all while wondering if you were really picking the right option for yourself?

Today, Celeb Secrets is exclusively premiering the rising artist’s new music video for the track. To celebrate, we also got the scoop on the making of the song, and the real-life story that inspired the powerful lyrics. Be sure to catch our exclusive Q & A interview (and the video!) below.

Celeb Secrets: What has your experience been like recording this track?

Christian James: This track took a lot out of me, mostly emotionally, but it gave me an opportunity to express that and how I feel.

Celeb Secrets: How did this song idea happen?

Christian James: I’ve been wanting to write a song about this for a while now. I was in LA for some writing sessions when I came across one that I just started spilling about my past relationship. It really took a lot out of me emotionally. So I decided to write about the things I wish I could take back. Leaving West Palm Beach, FL (from a girl I adored), for the music scene here in Nashville, was one of hardest decisions I have ever made. Not to mention, I wasn’t the best partner in the relationship, so leaving was even harder for me. I knew I could never take anything back. So I wrote about it, apologizing for the way I left it.

Celeb Secrets: What’s the message you are hoping listeners take away from the song?

Christian James: Never take a loved one for granted. Give them your all, and if it is time to close that door, at least you can say you gave it your best.

Celeb Secrets: What was your favorite part of creating your music video?

Christian James: This music video was awesome to shoot. I think my favorite part was looking out the skyline of Nashville, knowing I came here for a reason: to pursue music.
