Songfacts®:

  • LeAnn Rimes told Great American Country: "I think this is every woman's theme song. No matter what crap goes on, all you need is a good friend and a glass of wine. That's what we do and it's great. One of my very best girlfriends and her husband and Dean and myself, we sit down with a glass of wine at the end of the day and hash it out. That's what this song is about. It really is about my life."
  • LeAnn Rimes told AOL about the origins of this song: "I remember writing down the title in my journal several years ago on a plane ride. I was having a tough time being away from home, and I thought a good friend and a glass of wine could solve many of my problems. I carried the title around for a long while until it found a home and became what it is today."
  • This was the second single from Rimes' 12th studio album, Family. It peaked at #35 on the Country chart.
  • Rimes co-wrote every track on the album. This one was written with Darrell Brown ("What I Cannot Change") and Blair Daly ("Family").
