Album: Bring You BackReleased: 2013Charted:
Brett Eldredge co-wrote this song with Nashville songwriters Ross Copperman and Heather Morgan. It was inspired by a time he spent in the Bahamas with his brother. The siblings borrowed a small boat to go island hopping and feed swimming pigs when they came upon a beautiful girl floating on a raft in the back of a yacht. "We're going to these pigs and we've got this bucket of slop and we're so excited and then we see this beautiful girl floating on a raft, heaven's light is shining on her," Eldredge recalled to Radio.com
. "There's no one around that area and we're like, 'We've got to go see what's going on.' We drive our little dinghy boat up closer and closer to see this girl and she's right up there behind this giant yacht. Two scary guys pop up out of the giant yacht and we're like, 'OK, we better take this dinghy boat and go feed these pigs.'"
"I told my brother, if I were to have ever met that girl, I would have liked to write a song about how we met and falling in love to the beat of the music came up about that," he continued. "I wrote that song with a couple buddies of mine when I got back to Nashville."
The song's music video was directed by Shane Drake (Little Big Town's "Tornado
," Tim McGraw's "Highway Don't Care
"). Though the song's storyline is set in Mexico, the clip was actually filmed in Staniel Cay in the Bahamas, where Eldredge was first inspired to pen the tune. The beautiful blonde who the singer makes out with at the end of the clip is played by model Katie Luddy.
