Josh Crosby and Robert Marvin produced this track. In our interview with the song's co-writer Catt Gravitt
, she explained that Lambert stopped recording during the session so he could take a call from VH1, which was doing a "behind the scenes" report on him. Lambert came back distraught because the network spent very little time discussing his music and focused the story on his being gay. "We all had this beautiful discussion about all of us, and him really sharing his vulnerabilities, and then he got back up to the microphone and sang that song," Gravitt said. "I truly think the world of that guy. He really was bearing his soul that day, and when I listen to him sing that song, it just kills me."
