Songfacts®:

  • Billy Ray Cyrus took this song into the Top 5 of the Country chart. After his pop hit "Achy Breaky Heart," it was a long climb back to credibility in Nashville for Cyrus, although he always enjoyed a very loyal fan base. For years, Cyrus starred in the PAX TV show Doc, which enjoyed the highest ratings on the cable network. >>

  • Erika from West Band, WiOk, this is my favorite song of all time. I'm fifteen years old, and I've been listening to this song my entire life. I remember back when I was around 4 or 5, and I listened to this song constantly. I thought it was the cutest song i'd ever heard, and I still do. It sounds exactly like MY Dad, so this song is kind of an inspiration to me, since he's pretty much a work-aholic. But I just think the song is pretty. Simple, but it gets out a very important meaning to life: enjoy it, because it's short. Here's to you, Billy Ray.... :)
  • Karen from Manchester, NhWho thought to file this under "More songs about an old girlfriend or boyfriend"? This song has NOTHING to do with that.
