Guess You Had To Be There

Album: No Pier Pressure (2015)
  • This breezy song finds Brian Wilson collaborating with Kacey Musgraves. "When it's good it's good, when it's not - do it again. But after three tries, Kacey nailed it," he told Rolling Stone of the country singer. "I like the way she just slides over the notes - she has a very cool sound."
  • Musgraves originally tweeted that she was working with Wilson in June 2014. The song was reportedly titled "Sharing a New Day" back then, a phrase that's also among its lyrics.
