Niemann penned this neo traditional tune with Randy Boudreaux after the singer wrote the title on a paper napkin. He recalled to Southern Living Magazine: "I was going through this break-up, and my friend asked, 'You miss her a lot?' I said, 'No. Except for when I'm drinking. I guess I just love her in a whiskey kinda way.'"
Pete Townshend never had a #1 UK hit with The Who or as a solo artist, but he did produce and play on a song that hit the top spot there: "Something In The Air" by Thunderclap Newman, a group he assembled.
"Islands in the Stream" was originally written by The Bee Gees as an R&B song. It was originally written by the brothers for Marvin Gaye, however it was recorded instead as a duet by Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton with the Gibb Brothers also contributing vocals.
