Songfacts®:

  • This Country influenced track is from LP1, the fifth studio album by English soul singer-songwriter Joss Stone. The record was recorded in Nashville at Country star Martina McBride's Blackbird Studio. Produced and co-written by Eurythmics co-founder Dave Stewart, Stone, McBride and the Warren Brothers are also credited writers of the song.
  • Martina McBride explained to The Boot how she ended up with a writing credit for the British Pop/Soul singer. "Joss was recording in the studio with Dave Stewart, who we've come to know really well over the past year and a half," she recalled. "I was writing with the Warren Brothers in the writer's room in another building. They started playing me this idea they had for me, but I said I didn't think it would work for me, but it sounds just like Joss Stone who is recording down in the studio. We worked on it for an hour and half and then took it over to Dave and Joss and tailored it to her, to what she wanted to say. The five of us wrote it together, and it's on her album. It's really cool."
