McCoy told Artist Direct how this collaboration with Daryl Hall came about: "Daryl Hall is my hero. Actually, a few years ago, we named one of our tours the 'Daryl Hall for President Tour,' and it got back to his camp. His management found out, and they asked us, 'What's this all about?' They did their homework and saw that in every interview I do, I name drop Daryl Hall at least once or twice. He's been one of my biggest influences since I was a kid. We built this relationship back and forth through our management for a while. He came out to one of our shows, and then we built a real friendship. I went to a bunch of their shows. I did the Live at Daryl Hall's Place show, which is an online show he has. I was a guest on there. The song's really personal for me, so I asked him if he'd like to do it, and he said, 'Of course.' He went above and beyond the call of duty. I knew he was going to do his thing, but he went beyond even what I thought he was going to do."
