Songfacts®:

  • This uptempo, sing-along song penned by Dallas Davidson and Ben Hayslip finds Campbell singing about two people in love. Hayslip recalled to Roughstock the day he wrote this tune with his Peach Pickers colleague. "That was a title I had for probably a year, and I had thrown it out there for several people," said the songwriter. "For whatever reason, it just didn't get written. So when Dallas and I got together that day, I threw that idea out there and he loved it. So we went after it. Dallas came up with that cool melody on that song. I think we wrote that song in an hour and a half, tops. It was a pretty fast song."

    "Pretty soon after we wrote it, Craig Campbell heard it," Hayslip continued. "Not many people heard that song, but Craig loved it from the get-go. We wrote it around the first of last year, and it's just now coming out. It worked out pretty good. Craig's a Georgia boy and we're Georgia boys. I'm happy to have a single on him."
  • This song was climbing the charts when Campbell got news that his label, Bigger Picture Music Group, had folded. "When it closed, I was deflated. But, after thinking about it, I realized I was still working and doing my thing," he said.

    "The song was a hit song, so I became my own radio guy. I started calling stations and asked them not to give up on me because we didn't have a record label," Campbell added. "Sure enough, we were able to move the song about six more spots after it closed, which was a testament to the song and the relationships I had out in radio."

    Campbell has since signed with the Red Bow label.
