  • Lyrics
  • This song is about good memories from a simpler time, and how they don't cost a thing. No matter what shiny things we buy, it's those precious experiences with family and friends that bring the most joy, and those things are free.
  • "Free" was written by four top country writers: Lori McKenna, Luke Laird, Natalie Hemby and Barry Dean. McKenna co-wrote the group's most popular song, "Girl Crush."
  • According to Phillip Sweet of Little Big Town, when they heard this song, they felt it was the "cornerstone" of the album. "That's a sentiment that we really wanted to start with," he told Entertainment Weekly. "About the love in your life, that the things that matter are your family."
  • Karen Fairchild handles lead vocals on this track.
