This is one of three songs on Find a Light
that was written or co-written by Keith Nelson, formerly of Buckcherry. Blackberry Smoke frontman Charlie Starr
explained to Billboard
how the collaboration came about:
"He and I have been friends maybe 25 years and we've never worked together before in that regard. We've just been friendly for years. He called one day and just said, 'Hey, you want to write some songs?' and I thought, 'OK, that's something we've not done but, hey, let's do it.' And before I knew it we had written five, six songs.
We wrote long distance, which is a lot different than sitting down in a room with someone, good ol' fashioned face to face. But Keith and I are both guitar nerds, so it started just with guitar stuff; We were geeking out about different guitar tones and vintage guitars and amps and then started bouncing riffs back and forth, and then the songwriting began in earnest. It was very inspiring for me."
