Nashville songwriters John Scott Sherrill and Shawn Camp wrote this. Says Sherrill: "When we wrote it, it was almost a ballad - slow mid-tempo with a lilting little acoustic guitar lick that forms the basis of the song. When Ronnie and Kix first heard it, they weren't so sure about it. I think it was (producer) Don Cook who talked them into it. He said, 'I think we can mop this thing up and turn it into a Brooks & Dunn kind of thing,' and boy, they sure did. I thought that was great what they did there."
Many of the more personal songs Sherrill has written have become hits, including "Nothin' But The Wheel" by Patty Loveless and "Modern Day Drifter" by Dierks Bentley. This was not written from his personal experience. Says Sherrill, "That might of come from Shawn's inner personal turmoil banks, but not mine. I think he's writing about somebody I don't know."
The line, "A month of Sundays" is a southern expression Sherrill's mother used to say. It means a long time - 31 Sundays, that's a long time.
"Cleveland Rocks" was written by an Englishman. Ian Hunter wrote the song after touring America in the late '70s and finding that Cleveland was by far the most receptive city to his brand of Glam Rock.
