Songfacts®:

  • Here, Luke Combs considers a journalist's question: What would be doing if he wasn't a successful country music artist? The "Cold As You" star replies that such is his passion for music, he'd still be performing his songs, whether it be "at the Grand Ole Opry or a show in some no-name town."
  • Combs performed the song for the first time at the 55th Annual CMA Awards at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on November 10, 2021. He won Entertainer of the Year at the event.
  • Combs wrote the song with his good friends Drew Parker and Rob Williford. The three also penned his hit single "Forever After All" together.
  • The song's music video highlights Combs' college buddy Adam Church. They used to play in the same band in their Appalachian State University days, but while Combs has gone onto greater things, Church has a day job to pay the bills. He still performs at shows on weekends with the same band members he and Combs used to play with.
