The song “Over for You” was published by Evans in October. A few months later, in an interview on the Bobby Bones Show, he discussed the personal lyrics he’d written.
“It felt good to do that,” Evans said. “Just be honest, and not try to cover things up.”
“Having gone through a situation like that, seeing that it helps other people going through situations like that, yeah, it’s a big deal,” he added, noting that he believes that “vulnerability and personal writing is the thing that most widely relates to people.”

Ballerini, who is only 29, had already published an EP and short film titled Rolling Up the Welcome Mat, in which she explains why she and her husband separated.
A few days later, on an episode of Call Her Daddy, she spilled the beans on the breakdown of her marriage, including the moment she says she hit rock bottom and opted to give up half the house and sleep on the couch.
“There were separations, there were years of couples therapy. There was like, many a night of sleeping on the couch,” said Ballerini, who also slammed Evans for releasing “Over for You” before their divorce was finalized. “I don’t think it was the first night, but it was a night where I was like, this is not what I want.”
She continued: “I slept on the couch the night before the CMAs and I remember I went to rehearsal at the arena and texting him and him being like, ‘I’ll just see you at the carpet.'”
Evans appeared to comment on it on social media the day before the whole episode was aired.
Evans expressed his sadness about the situation on Instagram, writing, “It’s really sad for me to see this person, who I spent so much of my life with, and loved with all my heart, saying things that aren’t real and that leave out what happened.”
“She knows I’m not the type of guy to speak on those things publicly. If this is what she needs to heal, I hope it helps,” he added. “All I ask is that if you’re on my pages, please don’t be mean. Don’t be mean to Kelsea, don’t be mean to each other.”
