GNA Summer Picnic star Jason Michael Carroll delivered one of the most compelling country story songs of all-time with his song ‘Alyssa Lies.’

Carroll told CMT that the song was inspired by a poem a friend wrote about child abuse. “It really struck a nerve. I thought about writing it, and then I tried to put it out of my head. Two days later, I turned on the TV and saw a story on the news about [child abuse]. I said, ‘Well, two times in two days, I’m definitely supposed to write this song.’ It took me a week and a half to write the first verse and the chorus. Then, after that, I struggled to the point of migraines for a year and a half before I finally finished it.”
