"This ain't gonna help us get closure / We'll say the same goodbye, swearing it's the last time / But no matter how we try, baby / We can never stay over," sings Michelson.

Rising country singer Jackson Michelson has launched a brand new single, “Stay Over.” Co-written with Jeff Pardo (Ben Rector, Francesca Battistelli) and Molly Reed Grayson (Danielle Bradbery, Marie Osmond), the song follows the peels the layers of a passionate yet unsteady hot-cold relationship, while relying on a mid-tempo production to augment the emotional turmoil. The idea of this song’s narrative all stemmed from a dream.

Michelson told Sounds Like Nashville, “I woke up from a dream with the idea of the song ‘Stay Over,’ talking about a relationship that was meant to be, but the timing wasn’t right. The next morning, I went into a co-write and remembered the idea I had the night before. ‘Stay Over’ is one of those real songs that a lot of people can relate to, but people don’t talk about it much.”

“I know you’re gonna show up at my door, throw your heels on my floor / And you’ll be saying maybe you should stay over / I know we’ll be kissing at the stairs, I’ll be messing with your hair / Fall asleep with your head on my shoulder / We can’t let it go even though we now / This ain’t gonna help us get closure / We’ll say the same goodbye, swearing it’s the last time / But no matter how we try, baby / We can never stay over,” sings Michelson.

“Stay Over” follows the ongoing success of Michelson’s recent single, “One At A Time,” which has amassed a whopping 105,000 views on its video, as well as multiple adds on curated playlists. The single that launched him into the spotlight, “The Good Life,” was also a hit on Sirius XM’s The Highway.
