The album was produced by Tony Brown, head of MCA Records. The second album featured a more straight-ahead, contemporary country. As with the first, Cryner wrote five of the songs on the album, with the other five coming from outside songwriters, including her cover of "Son of a Preacher Man". The album was heralded by the first single and video, "I Just Can't Stand To Be Unhappy," which was written by noted songwriter Hugh Prestwood and entered the country charts on October 14, 1995.
It peaked at #63 on the Hot Country Singles & Tracks. The second single and video, "You'd Think He'd Know Me Better," entered the charts on March 2, 1996 and peaked at #56. A third single and video, Cryner's autobiographical "I Didn't Know My Own Strength," was released in late summer 1996 but failed to chart. Cryner was dropped from MCA when the album failed to sell. Cryner continued writing songs for other artists, including Trisha Yearwood's "Real Live Woman" (#16), Lorrie Morgan's "You'd Think He'd Know Me Better" (#66), Suzy Bogguss' "Nobody Love, Nobody Gets Hurt" (#75), and Lee Ann Womack's "Stronger Than I Am." She also regularly plays at The Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, Tennessee, a tavern/restaurant that features singer/songwriters.
