  • This Neil Thrasher, Wendell Mobley and Hillary Lindsey penned song finds a remorseful Aldean expressing regret for not allowing someone in. "There is always going to be people that are falling in love or out of love, or whatever it is," he told "Going through the best time, the best relationship ever, or the worst breakup ever, or whatever it is. I think when you start having songs like that; there is always somebody who can relate to those kinds of songs. You're stubborn and you're constantly fighting with somebody and in reality all they're trying to do is be there for you or whatever you don't really see it at the time."

    "That's one of my favorite songs on the record," Aldean added. "I think songs like that I really don't think you can go wrong with because I think anybody who has ever been in a relationship period can relate to that."
