Speaking more about the meaning and creation behind ‘More Than A Good Cry’, Amanda explains: “I started writing these songs over the last few years, as a way to cope with depression, relationship issues and struggling to make the right choices in my life. I was lucky enough to co-write ‘More Than a Good Cry’ with Elliott Blaufuss and Jenn Bostic, who helped me tap into a part of my life I had compartmentalized for a long time. Working with Tim Bruns, my producer in Nashville, TN was a dream. Tim really helped me find my identity as a musician, and helped these songs reflect who I am.”
