Michelle Branch and singing partner Jessica Harp decided to name their new group The Wreckers after inadvertently dating married men. Both had been involved in past relationships with sleazy men and thought it would make a great name for their new duo. Branch explains, "Before I was married, Jess and I would always laugh about these horrible relationships we'd find ourselves in. "I dated a credit-card stealer once." Harp also had a similar experience saying, "I dated this guy for about a year and found out that he was married and had a baby." Branch adds, "So we started saying, 'We're homewreckers without knowing it!' We felt horrible."
