I was messing around with my guitar and the song kind of fell out," Matt told All Country News.

The track is a thoroughly engaging listen that embodies everything that country fans crave. Sonically provocative, the modern day love story impresses from first to last note. Matt Roy's craftsmanship is apparent making Mary & Me one of the more clever songs of 2023.
