This song is a duet with Vince Gill
. Millard told Christian Music Today
how he ended up recording with the country singer. Said Millard: "Once we had a chorus that just broke my heart, I started writing a verse for it. Eventually, Vince Gill became involved to sing backing vocals, and when he heard 'Jesus Cares for Me," he said, "Man, I'd love to take a shot at that." And I was like, Gosh, he'd sound perfect on this! It's one thing to ask Vince to do harmonies, but to actually showcase him on a duet - normally that's a battle with the record labels, but Vince can get away with anything like that. So it was great to have him and he nailed the duet."
