Songfacts®:

  • This country ballad finds Cody Johnson reflecting on his many hardships and heartbreaks en route to finding the girl he's meant to be with forever.

    Every fork in the road
    It was all worth the while
    When I finally saw your smile
    Every highway, every heartbreak
    Every mountain, every mile


    Johnson is grateful for all of the hard stuff he had to endure because it led him to his wife.
  • "On My Way to You" was written by Brett James and Tony Lane. However, Johnson explained in a press release that it's a true story about meeting his lifetime partner, Brandi. "It's about me on my path to my wife," he said. "Maybe you'll relate to it. I hope you do."
