<p><span style="font-family: Aclonica, sans-serif; font-size: medium;">The inspiration for Miss Mary Mack came from the childhood clap and double dutch jump rope games&nbsp;that Phoebe McMillian played as a child growing up in Atlanta, Georgia.</span></p>
<p><span style="font-family: Aclonica, sans-serif; font-size: medium;"></span></p>
<p><span style="font-family: Aclonica, sans-serif; font-size: medium;">"This song was so much fun to write!" Phoebe recalled. "We wanted to portray what a summer was like from&nbsp;a girl perspective reminiscing about back in the day, summer events and of course&hellip;boys."</span><span style="font-family: Aclonica, sans-serif; font-size: medium;">&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span style="font-family: Aclonica, sans-serif; font-size: medium;"></span></p>
<p><span style="font-family: Aclonica, sans-serif; font-size: medium;">Some of the terminology in the song is from steps used in double dutch.</span></p>
<p><span style="font-family: Aclonica, sans-serif; font-size: medium;"></span></p>
<p><span style="font-family: Aclonica, sans-serif; font-size: medium;">"My two favorite parts of Miss Mary Mack&nbsp;are the rap and military breakdown. Both were somewhat unexpected because we thought we&nbsp;were going to have a guest record the breakdown. Instead after our scratch vocals were completed and&nbsp;a scheduling issue for our guest, we kept our recording and the rap you hear is the original scratch!"</span></p>
<p><span style="font-family: Aclonica, sans-serif; font-size: medium;"></span></p>
<p><span style="font-family: Aclonica, sans-serif; font-size: medium;">Phoebe and Rob Kuhlman wrote Miss Mary Mack for another artist who ended up not recording it. They decided since it was such a fun song </span><span style="font-family: Aclonica, sans-serif; font-size: medium;">they&nbsp;would record it instead.</span></p>
