“It instantly caught my attention as we were listening down through literally hundreds of songs on our comp CDs,” bass player Jay DeMarcus says. “I kept going back to that one because it’s such a unique melody and such a unique feel for us. And I think that when I heard the chorus kick in, it kept getting my attention every time I listened [to it]. I remember I actually had a phone conversation with Gary [LeVox], and I said, ‘Man, the second song on this comp, “Why Wait,” is really, really different for us and really catchy, and I think could really showcase our harmonies really well.” (CMT.com)
