When Kelley wrote this song, he wasn't thinking of recording it himself. In our 2011 interview with Josh Kelley
, he told us: "I wanted to pitch it to Keith Urban. I was like, 'I want a Keith Urban cut,' which is obviously almost impossible. But I sent it to my publishers, and they said, 'Josh, no, you've got to try country again. This sounds like you, these sound the best you've ever sounded.' And that's really what made it happen. I even sent it to Charles, and Charles said the same thing. He goes, 'Bro, this is as country as it gets. Man, you sound great on this. You've got to give it a shot.' So he motivated me. I was doing great as an independent artist and I was making the kind of money that I wanted to make. It's just when that happened, I realized that, okay, this can really happen. Let's try to get a record deal. And so I put together $20,000 from the publisher company and that helped me with a 5-song EP. And then we shopped it around to everybody going to Nashville."
