  • Need You Now is bookended with two of its most emotionally naked numbers. This closing track provides a sort of answer to the album opener, "Need You Now."
  • Co-vocalist Hillary Scott told CMT News that that this cut "is really, really special to me." She explained: "It's the one that I relate to the most. It's very personal, so we really allowed ourselves to go there and be vulnerable and show the fans that we feel and we hurt and we love just like anybody else does. I hope they feel that when they hear it."
  • Whilst songs like "'Something 'Bout a Woman" and "When You Got A Good Thing" were inspired by co-vocalist Charles Kelley's newly-wedded bliss, other tracks on Need You Now such as this song reveal the other side of the emotional coin. That's no accident, Kelley told The Toronto Sun: "Well, I just got married, so there is a lot of that. I was definitely feeling in that romantic place. But people don't want to hear a whole record about that. We don't either. And at the same time, Hillary was going through a lot of stuff. That's where 'Ready to Love Again' and some of the other songs about having to pick yourself back up came from. So we ended up with a balanced record."
