The Chicks wrote this song with Gary Louris
of Alt-Country band The Jayhawks. It was one of several songs they penned together. Louris told us that he enjoys the collaboration process. He explained: "It's an art form to learn how to sit in a room with somebody and tap into the emotions of the other person and learn how to create something not OK, but great. It's got to be great. You can sit there and check it off your list, 'Okay, wrote a song today, who cares?' If it's not good, it doesn't really matter how many songs you write. They have to be great."
"With co-writing, I like working off other people," he continued. "I'm not that great at working in a void. And so with the Dixie Chicks, it was great. It was difficult with them only because there were four people. Three of them and myself. And that's difficult, but it worked. It's easier one on one, two people together. To get four people to agree on ideas is always difficult."
