Songfacts®:

  • This is the lead-off single to husband and wife Country music duo Joey Martin Feek and Rory Lee Feek's second studio album, Album Number Two. The song's verses alternate vocals between Joey and Rory, while Zac Brown of the Zac Brown Band performs the bridge. Zac Brown co-wrote the track with Rory Lee Feek while they were out on tour together.
  • In our interview with Joey and Rory, Rory explained: "'This Song's For You' happened because Zac is a good friend of ours and we've been out playing a ton of shows with him all spring and summer, and we wrote a couple of songs together on the tour bus. And that one we just started playing every night in the shows, and the response was so big to it. Especially in a live situation, that song really hits home a lot with people, and so we just wanted to capture this time in our lives with Zac and those guys, and keep it forever and put it on our new album. We shot that video and recorded the song, and now we've got a forever song, and we get to share that with people, too."
