The artist explains the concept, describing how “although your heart and you want it not to be,” it is the inevitable reality of the situation. This even applies to the dissolution of their marriage. Kacey said she decided to part ways with Ruston because it “just didn’t work out”.

“It’s nothing more than that,” she continues. “It’s two people who love each other so much, but for so many reasons it just didn’t work. I mean, the seasons change. Our season has changed.”

And no, she didn’t just give up on their relationship. Although Kacey tells Rolling Stone that she is always fed up with the concept of marriage, she says she was “open to it” and “hugged” it while dating Ruston. Now that it’s over, she ponders, “I just have to tell myself that I was brave to push through these feelings.”
