This is the first single from The Traveling Kind
, the second collection of duets between Emmylou Harris
and Rodney Crowell, who was a rhythm guitarist in the songstress' Hot Band during the mid-'70s. "I wrote the song with Larry Klein about 23 years ago and I was looking for a way to do it," Crowell told Billboard
magazine, prior to the track's release. "I played for Emmy and she really liked it."
