I Wish I Could Back Up

Album: Good Time (2008)
  • The Seattle Post-Intelligencer asked Jackson if this was autobiographical in the light of his wife Denise Jackson's best-selling book (It's All About Him: Finding the Love of My Life), in which she revealed that her Christian faith had helped save a marriage gone astray. The Country superstar replied: "Well, definitely, there's a lot of that lyric that I've lived. It made it much easier to write because I've been through a lot of that. But I didn't sit down and necessarily put it together for that reason."
