Songfacts®:

  • Chris Stapleton serenades his wife here over an old-school country waltz. He penned the song with bluegrass songwriter and vocalist Ronnie Bowman, who also co-wrote the Traveller tracks "Nobody To Blame" and "Outlaw State Of Mind."
  • Stapleton told the story of the song: "I used to have an office on 16th Avenue. One night, Ronnie Bowman and I were hanging out and wound up there. I pulled out a mandolin and he grabbed an upright bass I had sitting in the corner and began to play. It was an old sound. Almost Marty Robbins like. It felt like a love song. We both have remarkable women for wives. We tried our best to write this as a song celebration of that."
