I'm Staying Here

1 Do you mind if I give you a kiss? I don't know if I'm ready for that.
I'm saving myself for marriage.
The path you are choosing isn't easy I want what you and Kerry have? Do you even recognize me anymore? Am I even the same person that you meet in Los Angeles? I'm not even the same person When Kerry is gone, you are not thinking about if he with is a girl.
Kerry is definitely getting a lot of attention.
Even though he has a ring on his finger.
Just because there is a goaly, doesn't mean you don't play soccer.
so is there anything trying to change in our workout? No, I think everything is going well.
- Good.
- I mean like actual results.
I tell you, your face is getting leaner not that it needed to.
Yeah, remember that time in college when you called me fat? - I did not call you fat.
- You called me fat.
I would never.
You said I was puffy.
- You said I looked puffy - Because you asked if you did.
I will never forget that.
- Ah! - It's Jessica.
Now be nice.
Hello.
Jessica? Jackson, what are you doing? I am actually chillin' with my cousin, Alexander You're actually on speaker right now.
Hello Jessica! Hey girl.
I've heard about you.
Oh you have.
Well I heard about you, too.
- We'll need to get together.
- I would love to.
I'm looking forward to meeting you.
Alicia and I are having a birthday party, you’ll have to come.
Oh nice.
Okay.
you should come, too.
Count us in for sure.
Awesome.
That sounds great.
- I just did.
.
- Bye Jessica.
- See you.
Bye - see ya.
Oh my God! That was Jessica.
I guess now you're stuck with me.
I'm actually coming I guess I'm calling.
Funny that she called.
We had a studio session.
She was making me more confident making you more confident? At I point my confidence was high.
We were groove in together and I said do you mind if I kiss you? She said no.
Oh my god! I was like oh my god.
Like the first time ever that's happened in your life.
Not true.
But it's the first time in a while.
She didn't say one more thing she went into the story about she likes to take it slow.
Clearly.
She got into the topic of she was, said she was a virgin.
Oh! - Which is cool.
- Yes.
It's just like something You don't hear that every day.
But I like hugging my girl and, like you know sometimes one thing leads to another.
I got it.
Won't go into it but you know seems like a bit of a change.
That's just your sisterly instincts coming out which, you know, piss me off sometimes but I understand where you're coming from.
I won't pull out the claws this time.
Thank you.
Oh yeah.
How you been? Good.
I can't wait for your birthdays.
I'm excited.
Are you excited Kerry is back yeah, it's good.
It's an adjustment, but.
Yeah? It's like, he's used to, like, being on the road and playing music, and then it's like, you help me with dinner and Right.
- Marriage, right? - Marriage! So we have a five year anniversary coming up and I got us a hotel room.
Good idea, ray.
But dating.
I'm dating, yeah.
That's a thing.
So, Jackson.
Have y'all hung out? Yes, we have.
He may have tried to kiss me, and What do you mean he tried? He asked.
- It was like - And you were like, no, I'm not ready for that? Yeah, I was just like, ah You're physically attracted to him, right? Yeah, he's cute.
Do I have eyes? I'm looking for something, like, serious and, you know, I'm about to turn 30 and I don't have the husband and kids and the life that I thought I would, but I'm looking for what you have you know? I love being a wife and mom, but trust me married life is no fairytale, either.
I don't know.
Who knows, maybe Jackson is that person.
You'll just have to kiss him and find out.
Just all the kisses.
[Giggling] [Music playing] Swift as a river, with a hand as hard as stone What up? Good to see you, man.
You go antiquing on the road? Heck yeah.
For a farm truck, it's not so bad.
Wait, this is the real test.
I ain't tried yet.
It works.
- Heck yeah.
- How was the road? It was good.
Glad to be back.
Yeah.
Being gone as much as I've been, you miss so many, like, firsts.
Like the first time he crawls and steps and says Dada.
How's Rachel with you leaving and? You know, I'm gone probably more than I'm home these days and she has this, like, idea that being gone on the road is vacation.
I actually got a gig down in Georgia this week.
I need a guitar player.
I mean, it's just that's my anniversary this weekend.
Dude.
Road calls.
It's just a matter of making that decision do I go or do I spend some time and hang out with the family for a little bit because that's what, you know, the wife and kid obviously want.
Yeah, it's tough, man, trying to find that balance of road life and, like, Nashville life.
Takes a strain on relationship, man.
- I mean - You're telling me.
It's tough, but it's like it's the only life we know.
It's just the way it is.
[Music playing] How was your day.
It was good.
Thank you for working.
I know it's not the best.
It's not the worst either, I suppose.
We have the party coming up.
And our anniversary.
- We do have an anniversary coming up.
- Five Years Five years.
Why are you acting weird? Because have I to propose something to you? - What? - I saw David.
Yeah, I love that guy.
Ah.
.
David wants me to help him out on a show coming up.
A short two-day trip.
So, I just wanted to ask if it were possible to celebrate our anniversary a day or two later than we normally do.
But five years is a really big deal and I had a whole thing planned for us.
Five years is a big accomplishment but it's important to me that I don't miss these shows because you never know what opportunities could come from that.
I'll tell David I can't take this opportunity.
Thank you, honey.
But the whole reason we're - here to begin with - I know.
Have you already planned something? Yeah.
Something really nice.
Let's go all out You know it's gonna get loud.
- High hey, girl.
- Hello.
- Good to see you.
- You to.
- How are you doing.
- I'm good.
- Sorry I'm late.
- Yeah.
Fashionably late.
I waited for you.
Nashville time.
Are you excited about our birthday party? Yes.
Yes Would it be crazy Oh Oh.
if we sang a song together? Kinda like as our thank you to their coming? Yeah I've always wanted to sing with you.
Same here.
Who do you want to invite? I think we can invite Bryant? Super cute.
- Ah.
.
He is very.
.
He is cute - He is cute I'm not into it.
- Who do you want to invite? - I might invite Jackson.
Yes I invited him to the studio and - Oh girl! - Oh girl.
What? Out of nowhere like he asked if he could kiss me.
Who asks someone? Jackson.
That's weird.
How much more awkward would it have been if he went in and I was just like no.
Because he probably has never been shot down in his life.
- Oh! - And so he Everybody has been shot down.
When you look like Jackson you are not getting shot down.
- No.
- No.
Do you want to buy some of my girl scout cookies? Yes.
- You have girl scout cookies? - Yeah.
Do you have thin mints? - Yeah.
- Oh, man.
Hook it up.
I'm Alisa's calling.
Oh, Alisa.
Sorry, guys, let me make sure she doesn't need anything.
Hey, girl.
Do you have a second to talk? I'm at work, so yeah, just real quick.
Did Mack tell you about our joint birthday party? Yes, I'm so excited.
She told me that she had talked to you a little bit but I just wanted to make sure you're coming.
Yes.
I cannot wait.
Sounds good.
What's going on in your world? Kerry and I had a talk yesterday.
What happened? Basically I, like, begged him to stay home for our anniversary, even though he had an opportunity to go on tour with David.
Did he forget it was your anniversary? No, he just wanted to go.
I just feel like he always prioritizes music over our relationship.
I get where you're coming from.
I mean, step it up for one day at least.
Exactly.
Okay, I need to figure out, like, childcare.
I love your child.
I'll watch him.
Really? Like, you guys need a night to yourself.
Yeah.
Oh my god, Awesome.
No problem.
Have fun babysitting all of your children.
Okay, yeah, I gotta get back.
Okay, I'll talk to you later.
Bye.
[Music playing] Send me to the river baby awaken my soul This is so pretty.
Thanks, appreciate it.
Thank you for staying.
I know you were frustrated.
Missing the tour with David.
I was frustrated at first.
I hope you understand why.
But I'm glad to be here now.
happy anniversary.
Thank you, honey.
I have a big surprise for you.
What is it? Close your eyes.
Close your eyes.
What is it? Open them.
What's this? - A room tonight.
- Hey.
What's the sitter going to do? Alisa knows.
How about that? A lot of work to get here.
I pictured marriage being so easy.
I did, too.
- I thought it would make my life - Better? You've made my life better 100 percent.
Don't you think I overreact.
You should always do that like leave me with the answer before you ask me a question like that.
- Like a lawyer.
- Yeah.
Objection, leading the witness.
I accept.
- Speaking of lawyering.
- Yeah.
I've kinda narrowed it down to the schools I want.
- Okay.
- Denver, L.
A.
, Portland, Nashville.
I really like L.
A.
We tried to live there once and it didn't work.
This is what I'm dreaming about.
I'm dreaming that while I'm in law school wherever I am, you are touring and excelling in music.
Yeah.
We don't have to live in the same place during that time but we are together a lot.
Are you even open to it at all? As of now no.
You're not compromising.
Think about it.
You get to do what you want to do.
Live in the city you want do the career you want.
For law school, this might not be the best place.
Here's the thing I'm staying here.
I do support you.
I just think there is a compromise that isn't you moving across the country.
Sorry that sometimes I have to miss some things to go on the road.
You mean the world to me and I want to be here for all things important but I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me for wanting to chase my dream as hard as I do.
Sometimes I'm not as supportive as I should be of your music.
But I am really proud of you.
Thank you.
And I love you.
I love you, too.
Should we go put this to use? Let's do it.
Been around the world been around the world been around the world been around the world.
All right, let's get in and get out.
What do you say? I mean, first of all, this is what you are wanting me to come to, to meet your new girlfriend.
What are you thinking? Dress - Dress - Pants? What Something a little flashy.
Classy and flashy, that's the way I live.
I'd say more on the side of not too, too flashy.
Okay.
Supposed to be short and low.
Ready to go try some things on? Are you, is the question.
- I'm ready.
- All right, let's do it.

Why is this girl talking to Jackson so heavy? I got a text message few days ago.
Your marriage is stronger than some guy who's coming up out of the blue.
