This was the first single from Oregon-born, Nashville-based singer-songwriter Mat Kearney's third album City of Black & White
. When we spoke with him in 2011
, he explained: "I had a love/hate relationship with that song. It was hard to play and I didn't know what I thought of it. I really appreciate that song. It's been interesting how that line, 'I guess we're all one phone call from our knees,' has really meant a significant thing to a lot of people. I didn't foresee that when I wrote it."
