This song dates back to Keith Urban's days as lead singer of the country trio, Ranch. Co-written by him with Vernon Rust, it featured on their self-titled 1997 debut album. Nail explained to Roughstock
why he decided to cover the tune: "There are a couple of records that really influenced me when I first moved to town, and that is one of them. 'Desiree' starts out like a ballad, but ends up a bona fide up-tempo song. I don't write a lot of tempo, and I don't want to cut a tempo song just for the sake of it. It wouldn't really speak to me. But this feels like it fit the sound of the record. It's a song that bridges some of the more produced stuff, like 'Let It Rain
,' with the more loose songs like 'Grandpa's Farm.'"
