  • Lyrics
  • This duet with Buck Owens is based on a demo that Owens recorded before his death in 2006. Paisley told CMT: "He wrote a song that works great as a duet. He played guitar, he sang on it, he did the harmony parts. It's perfect. It's incredibly perfectly tuned... The theme of the song is running into someone you haven't seen in a while, and anyway, he and I are singing that to one another now on this record. And it's really cool."
  • At Buck Owens' funeral Paisley played a very emotional version of his 2006 country chart-topper, "When I Get Where I'm Going."
  • Brad Paisley told AOL that after he called the Owens family to see if there was anything they had on tape that might work for a posthumous duet, they sent him this song. He added: "When I heard it I instantly thought that it was a duet... So I sang to his harmony parts so that he's singing harmony with me, and then I sang harmony with him. Plus that's him playing the mandolin solo and the dobro fills."
