Rucker (from his record label's website): "This is about my two daughters. I've got a 13 year old and 7 year old. I wrote it with Ashley Gorley and Chris DuBois, who also have daughters. This song may be my favorite song on the record. I love playing it acoustically. We play it when we visit radio stations, and there wasn't a day where at least two people didn't cry. We'd just look and count. It's absolutely bittersweet. When we were writing it, we were talking about how fast our families were growing up. That first week after the baby is born is awful: you're up all the time. Then when it's not like that, you miss those times."
When this climbed to the top slot on the Hot Country Songs chart, Rucker became the first male artist to notch #1s with his first two format singles since Clay Walker premiered with "What's It to You" and "Live Until I Die" in 1993 and 94. Rucker's debut Country chart-topper was "Don't Think I Don't Think About."
