Chris Daughtry wrote this song with American songwriter Claude Kelly, whose other credits include Kelly Clarkson's "My Life Would Suck Without You
" and Miley Cyrus' "Party in the U.S.A.
." He recalled to The Hollywood Reporter
: "The song went through many different phases, as far as production. We ended up stripping everything away and cutting a live piano. I did the final vocals in a hotel room on my laptop with my mic at about three in the morning. I'm surprised I didn't get security called on me. I did all those vocals and editing right there and that's what's on the record."
