Album: Sara Smile (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • This Dave Berg, Rivers Rutherford, and Tom Shapiro song was originally the lead single from Canadian country group Emerson Drive's 2008 album, Believe. Their version peaked at #32 on Billboard's Hot Country songs chart.
  • Wayne told Roughstock that he recorded this song before Emerson Drive. He explained: "I recorded this first. But then there was that long time between albums, so it never came out. It got lost. Just because you've recorded a song doesn't make it yours. The writers have to make a living, and you can't hold a song forever. I understand that. Anyhow, Emerson Drive didn't know I'd recorded it when they put it out as a single. And I didn't know they'd recorded it. I feel strongly enough about this song to want to get it out there for people to hear it, so when we were putting together the song list for this CD, I went back to this song. I still think it is a huge, monster song."
