    "This record is dedicated to my beloved Toddy," Berry said. "My darlin', I'm growing old! I've worked on this record for a long time. Now I can hang up my shoes!"
  • The song was recorded with the help of Berry's son, Charles Jr., his grandson, Charles III, and the iconic blues guitarist Gary Clark Jr.
