  • Lyrics
  • This romantic Country duet features Joe Nichols. "I'm a huge Joe Nichols fan," Hale told "I love his tone, he's got such a fantastic voice, and he's a wonderful human being."
  • Hale said that when they were looking for a duet partner for the song she optimistically asked for Nichols but "never in a million years" thought the country star would be interested. "But he was," she added. "He really loved the song, and he liked my voice. And it all happened within a week. We made a phone call, he said yes, we recorded it, and it was on the album. So it's really cool to say Joe Nichols is on my first album. It's pretty crazy."
