Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye

Album: Tailgates & Tanlines (2011)
Charted: 29


  • This song finds Bryan singing of a relationship that's nearing its end but the narrator wants to spend one last night together with his lover. "Girl rest your head, one more time in my bed. Love me like you loved me when you loved me and you didn't have to try. Let's lay down tonight. And kiss tomorrow goodbye," he sings. Chris Young's 2011 hit "Tomorrow" has a similar theme.
  • Bryan penned the song with his producer Jeff Stevens and Nashville songwriter Shane McAnally whose other credits include Lee Ann Womack's "Last Call", Kenny Chesney's "Somewhere With You" and Jake Owen's "Alone With You".
  • Regarding the writing of the song, Bryan recalled: "We got out on the road and had a great time and wrote a couple songs, and the last day, Jeff had this title, and we wrote it. I mean, it's a great idea and a great thought. We wrote it right then. I think the chorus of that thing is some of the best writing that I've ever been a part of and I love the simplicity of the verses."
  • The song was Bryan's sixth #1 single on the Hot Country Songs chart.
