Songfacts®:

  • This was Clay Walker's first single in three years. His previous release, the fourth single from his 2010 studio album She Won't Be Lonely Long, "Jesse James," was dropped in 2012.
  • Clay Walker wrote the song along with Shane Minor (Cole Swindell's "Chillin' It," Kenny Chesney's "Live a Little") and Wade Kirby (George Strait's "I Saw God Today," Blake Shelton's "Doin' What She Likes".) "Working with Shane and Wade, who are not only tremendous musicians, but great friends, was really inspiring," Walker said "Shane thought that we should write something that would showcase what he calls 'the bluesy feel of my voice,' so he thought to call in Wade. What we came away with was, for me, 'soulful magic' - a song that's for everyone that has let themselves be vulnerable to the possibility of love."
