"Red High Heels" peaked at number 15 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart and number 64 on the Billboard Hot 100.

The song became her first to be certified Gold by the RIAA on June 2, 2009.
"Red High Heels" is an up-tempo country song, backed primarily by electric guitar. The song's female narrator, a young woman who is frustrated by a troubled past with a former ex, tells him that she'll move on in her "red high heels".
A music video, directed by Chris Hicky, was released in mid October; it features Pickler wearing denim jeans and red high heels. In the video, Pickler is shown approaching her ex-boyfriend as he is playing football. He starts to follow her but she pushes him away. She gets in her car with her girlfriends and drives to a nightclub, where she is shown performing on stage, with her band, as live entertainment. Her ex attempts to follow her to the club, but he is stopped at the door by the bouncer.
Portions of the video were shot at Robinson Stadium, and the high school football field in Watertown, Tennessee.
