Songfacts®:

  • The first single from Craig Campbell's second album is an up-tempo track about the struggle of lost love. This Brandon Kinney, Michael Carter, and Cole Swindell penned track was an easy choice to lead off his sophomore record. "The first time I heard this song I knew it was a big ole hit," he said. "I listened to it once and I was singing the lyrics 'YEAH! YEAH!' all day long. It's so true! Everyone has that someone they can't forget."
  • Campbell got to record this song after it was sent to him by mistake. He revealed to Billboard magazine: "When we were getting ready to cut the new album, we put the word out that we were looking for hit songs, and this one made its way to my email. But, it actually was sent to me by mistake. It was on hold by Scotty McCreery, but we 'sweet-talked' him into letting us have it. We went in, recorded it, and got it out as fast as we could."
