  • Aaron Watson penned this tune for his daughter Jolee Kate after writing The Underdog's title track for her brothers, Jake and Jack. "When [my daughter] found out that her brothers got a song and she didn't, she was not happy with me," Watson recalled to The Boot.

    "Even though I wrote that for Jolee Kate, I wanted all daughters … to hear that song and just know that they're special," he added.
