Right from the start of the traditional-sounding song, Wilson lays out just how passionate Stacy is about any new man who comes into her life: “Twenty-five times he's hit decline on his cell phone / Quit driving by 'cause you cry every time when he ain't home / I know you saw a diamond ring, babies and an SUV / Bless your little broken heart and how you fall apart.” “I definitely had someone in mind when I was writing it. I think my co-writers did too! That’s the beauty of this song … Everybody knows a Stacy!” Wilson says in a press release. “Stacy” was written by Wilson along with Bridgette Tatum and Rob Hatch.
