Caitlyn Smith has been friends with the members of Old Dominion for many years, so when it came time for a collaboration, she knew who to ask. Caitlyn says this about her new song ‘I Can’t’: "[While] driving I noticed the skyline of Nashville. "I've been in Nashville for 10 years, and the city has changed so much — but I've also changed so much as a person. So I was looking at the national skyline, like, 'Wow, it's kind of unrecognizable, with how much it's changed.' Then I started thinking how change is really a beautiful thing." From that idea, came the new song.
