Quote from The Reviews Are In “Krissy Feniak puts a little rock in her country right off the start of Bad Day, and keeps it going throughout. There’s some sass, some vindictive feelings, and it feels like the kind of country song that’s going to make some listeners go, “Yup, can I dedicate this to someone, please?”. Turn it up!”
“BAD DAY is (of course) about a boy! I found myself feeling just a little petty, nothing crazy, I didn't want to pull a Carrie Underwood on his car or anything, but to see him stub a toe or spill coffee on a white shirt would have made my day! So I brought this idea to my co-writers Mike Nash and Mat Cardinal and we had so much fun with it the song basically wrote itself.” Krissy Feniak
