  • Lyrics
  • Little Big Town's female members Kimberly Schlapman and Karen Fairchild were penning this song in the studio the same day that the two guys were writing "Faster Gun." "The girls wrote upstairs with Jay Joyce and Jedd Hughes, and Phillip and I, along with Jeremy (Spillman) and Ryan (Tyndell), went down to the basement," Jimi Westbrook recalled to Billboard magazine. "We were just hanging out having a good time, being free and creative, and not doing anything other than what we felt the song called for."

    "We came upstairs to angels singing in this beautiful moment of 'Silver and Gold,'" he added. "We laughed at just how different the moments were. I love that there's that kind of variety on this record."
