“Love Ain’t A Prize” was written by Donica Knight, her producer, Jim Huff, and Chris Vos.

Says Knight, “This time around, I wanted to make a record in LA, but reminiscent of some of the great southern rock and country I grew up listening to; some of that Muscle Shoals vibe with horns, motown-ish background vocals, and of course, lots of rock ‘n’ roll guitars”.
