The song was written by Ryan Hanna King, Caitlyn Smith and Don Schlitz (the latter wrote Rogers' #1 country hit, "The Gambler
"). Rogers said it was an ideal tune for the pair to celebrate their long-standing friendship. "I can't think of a more perfect song for the two of us to sing together," Rogers said. "Out of everyone in the business, Dolly is my best friend, so naturally it has special meaning for the both of us. It was so good to be back in the studio with her. I'm thrilled to have our relationship documented this way."
"There is just something about our chemistry with each other, our friendship, that people really sense what we really feel," Parton added. "To do a song that fits so many people, and certainly us, was an honor. It's been a wonderful journey, and I'm so glad I've been able to walk this road with Kenny."
