Songfacts®:

  • Live life day by day is the message of this Zac Maloy, Rachel Proctor and David Hodges written song. Lauren told Taste of Country she thinks its "cool." as "it has a completely different vibe than all of the other songs. It's almost like it's a sad song, but it's also happy at the same time."

    She added: "It has a great message. It's the kind of song that makes you want to cry. It says don't worry about the small things, things that have happened in the past or what you think might happen tomorrow. All that matters is what happens right now. That message really appealed to me because crazy things have happened to me in the last year. I think it's a song that people can relate to no matter what point you are at in your life. It tells you to take each day and make it last. You have to live day by day and you can't worry about tomorrow. I forget that a lot and I feel like other people do too. It's a good reminder."
