This song was supposed to be a hit. Between 2005 and 2008, there were multiple versions of "You Still Own Me" by multiple country artists. Ty Herndon recorded a version that went nowhere. John Berry had a version that went, well, nowhere. At least Emerson Drive managed to take "You Still Own Me" somewhere. But the song still fell short of their (and everyone else's expectations). This song sounded like a hit to just about everyone on Music Row. So, why wasn't it?
