"One Way Ticket (Because I Can)" or simply "One Way Ticket"[1] is the title of a song written by Judy Rodman and Keith Hinton, and recorded by American country music artist LeAnn Rimes. It was released in September 1996 as the third single from the album Blue. The single made her the fourth teen-aged country music act to score a Number One single on the U.S. Billboard country music charts. It is also her only Number One country hit.

According to one of her producers, Rimes sang the song in only one take.[2]

Critical reception

A review by Billboard stated "Less retro and traditional than her previous hit singles, Rimes' outing is a vibrant, uptempo number."[3]
