The video of Evie's singing was sent to Bentley when an opportunity to perform at a White House came up which coincided with his birthday. The singer was alone in his hotel room when he got an email. He explained to The Boot
: "My wife and one of my producers had teamed together to get Evie singing this song, 'Thinking of You,' on video and sent it to me as a birthday present."
He added that it was, "the saddest birthday present of all time. It just killed me. It just hurt. I loved it, as painful as it was. They had a recorded version of it, which I assume they thought I wouldn't go for [putting it on the new album] because I've never really sung songs about kids or any of that stuff. But I heard it and the last word she says on there is 'home,' which goes back to the first word you read on the album cover."
