Eldredge explained to Radio.com
how this ballad blends his love for Country and Soul music. "'One Mississippi' is definitely a song that brings in the whole love I have for soulful music combined with country," he said. "I heard Ronnie Dunn growing up, I heard Brooks & Dunn and I loved his soulful vibe that he had. I love how he ties that in with country music but with a very rural lyric."
