Though Kane Brown didn't write the song, he instantly related to the lyrics, first time he heard it. The singer recalled to Taste of Country
that he was on a writers retreat, and he was working on another of his debut album tracks "What's Mine Is Yours," when he overheard Shy Carter, Matthew McGinn and Lindsay Rimes working on "Heaven."
"So my buddy Shy Carter started singing it to me, and his voice is amazing, but also the song just really hit me and made me feel close to it," Brown said. "It really made me think about my fiancée. So I was like, 'There's got to be other people that can relate to this song.'"
