Songfacts®:

  • This was written by the band's vocalist Mike Eli with Heather Morgan and Liz Rose. Eli told Billboard magazine the romantic song was drawn from real-life inspiration: "I know it came from a very genuine place," he said. "I wrote that song for my wife, and I think that some of the stuff we came up with lyrically on that tune made it special. It feels very organic and broken down, when it comes to the production of it. The guitar solo on that track is one of my favorites that James (Young) has ever played."

    Mike Eli married Kacey Herndon on May 27, 2010. The nuptials were held on the family ranch of Eli's bandmate and best man, James Young, in Meridian, Texas.
