Ashley's grandfather Arnold Morris passed away on September 2, 2013 and the loss inspired her to write this song. The singer/actress told MTV News that it was through recording the track that she found strength. "I would just kind of go on walks and come back and have written something as if I was speaking to him," she revealed.
"My fiancé, Chris French, is actually a producer and he actually came back home one night and was like, 'I wrote some chords.' He played it for me and we just decided to make a song out of what I was going through," Ashley continued; "it organically happened. [My grandfather] always loved my music and loved when I would sing."
The song was Ashley's first release of new music since 2009. "I think that it was just the right thing and the right subject, and he meant so much to me," she told MTV News. "I felt like I wanted everyone to know who he was and how special he was to me. I just know if he was here and knew a song was written about him, he would tell everybody."
Thirty percent of the proceeds from the song's release went to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
