Songfacts®:

  • Alan Jackson married his high school sweetheart, Denise, on December 15, 1979. Denise Jackson later recounted the highs and lows of their marriage in her 2007 autobiography It's All About Him: Finding the Love of My Life. Inspired by her memoir, Alan Jackson wrote this song, which nine years later he recorded for his two disc gospel record Precious Memories Collection.
  • When asked about writing the track Jackson explained, "Inspired by Denise's strength and ability [in writing her book], I sat down and wrote a song of the same title hoping to add musically to an already uplifting story."
