The Little Big Town quartet share co-writing credits with Lori McKenna
on this yearning Country ballad. "I love that this lyric is so brutally honest," said Karen Fairchild. "There are times in a relationship when you allow things to come between you, so much so that it feels like an incredibly long way back to each other. It's a lonely place to be especially when you're lying right next to someone you love."
The song is sung as a duet between married band members Karen Fairchild and Jimi Westbrook.
The song's music video was shot in April 2013 by Becky Fluke (Pistol Annies/The Civil Wars). The clip takes place at the historic Tennessee Theater and The Oliver Hotel in Knoxville, Tennessee and captures a look into one night, highlighting the tension and honesty in the song's lyrics.
The song wasn't written or intended as a duet. "When we wrote this song with Lori McKenna, we didn't know it was going to be a duet. We wrote it from one person's perspective," Fairchild told CMT. "It was on accident that it became a duet."
She continued: "Clearly, Jimi and I live together, so when we were brainstorming on what should go on the record and what shouldn't, we were going through that song. There were just the two of us in the kitchen and we were like, 'Man, that makes a cool duet!'"

As a 5-year-old, Brandi was writing lyrics to instrumental versions lullabies. She still puts her heart into her songs, including the one Elton John sings on.

Inspired by his dear friend, "Seasons in the Sun" paid for Terry's boat, which led him away from music and into a battle with Canadian paper mills.
