This was written for the funeral of the Jackson family's housekeeper, who tragically died in 2007 in a motorcycle accident. Alan Jackson explained on his website: "It was for a lady who worked here at our house; someone I saw everyday like family. She died suddenly of an accident this past spring and it was really hard on me and all of us. This is the same track that we played at the funeral. It's a real pretty song and a lot of people told me how much it made them feel better so I was very proud of it."
