The trio wrote "Wanted You More" during soundcheck one afternoon with their road band. They've now come to realize the song is somewhat of a sequel to another huge Lady A hit.
"After listening to the song more and more, it felt like it's almost the next stage of 'Need You Now'," Lady A singer Charles Kelley explains. "It's like you're past that ... I guess you wanted me more than I wanted you. I don't need this anymore. It's cool to be continuing that story a little bit."
"That song, with the instrumentation and lyrics, it makes me sad to sing it," adds bandmate Hillary Scott. "But the lyrics, everybody -– whether we want to admit it or not -- has been in a place where we cared about someone more than they cared about us. It's a vulnerable thing to admit. It's definitely emotional."
