Songfacts®:

  • This was written by Hunter Hayes and Barry Dean (Little Big Town's "Pontoon") for the movie Act of Valor. Dean recalled to American Songwriter magazine: "One of my best friends as a kid, grew up to be a squadron commander for special forces, drones. He's a real hero; literally flew night vision helicopters. I got the opportunity to help Hunter write this song for this movie honoring Navy Seals and that allowed me to really express how much I thought of my friend and his wife, it meant so much to be able to do that through this song."
