This song about a distant relative that happened many years ago.
She had had enough of an abusive relationship, and decided that she had to do something about the situation. The lyric change things slightly, but it is overall a true story, about a woman who took action and changed her destiny. The idea came when Cassie’s mom was telling the story and she said “She went and asked her daddy for a gun to kill a rat”. How could you not use that line?
The video is split between the story, and studio video. Thanks to Jason Meekins, Cassie Russell, Dave Demarco, and Sean Grady for their performances.
We hope you enjoy the song and the video.
