Songfacts®:

  • On this melancholic number, which Currington wrote together with Tony Martin and Mark Nesler, the Country singer pleads to a lover not to move to a city with cold weather and a terrible football team. He told AOL: "When it came time to record this one, I was reminded of it by my publishing company, so I revisited it and remembered how special it was to me, and how it meant a lot to me, and how I think it relates to a lot of people's relationships – mine for sure – how people decide at a moment in time that they think they need to move on, and how I could think of nine million reasons why they shouldn't. That's how this one came about."
