Currington told AOL the story of this song, which he wrote with Bob DiPiero and Scotty Emerick
: "'I Shall Return' came about kind of on accident also. I was sitting in an office at a publishing company one day, playing on my gut string guitar, and the first line of the song just kind of fell out with the melody. As I was singing it, two writers, two of my buddies, happened to be walking by the room at that time. They asked me what I was singing, I told them, just kind of goofing around, and they said 'Man, we oughta finish this!' It was finished in a couple of hours. It remains a fun track for me on the album, and I love to hear it, love to hear the guitars in it."
