  • This R&B-influenced cut featuring distinct drum loops sounds like nothing else on country radio. Gloriana's Tom Gossin penned the tune with with Josh Kear, the first song the pair have written together since their 2011 hit single, "(Kissed You) Good Night." Gossin told "The thing I love about Josh is that when he and I get together it's really just total creative freedom. We never say, 'The song has to fit in this box. It has to sound like this or say these things.' We just say, 'Let's write a cool song.'"
