Country singer Cam explained her new song's backstory: "It's the apology so many spouses deserve, but never get," she said, "The other woman is coming forward to break the news to the wife about an affair, respecting her enough to have that hard conversation, once she realized he was married. Because everyone should be able to decide their own path in life, based on the truth. Women especially should do this for each other, since our self-worth can still be so wrapped up in our partners. And in true country fashion, I've set the whole raw story to upbeat music, so you can dance while you process it all."
Cam co-wrote "Diane" with Jeff Bhasker and Tyler Johnson, who also wrote her big hit "Burning House."
