The song was penned by 2009 American Idol
winner Kris Allen with Andrew Frampton and Stephen Allen Kipner. "It's actually a funny story. I got my hands on the song. It was an amazing song, and I didn't find out until a little later on that Kris was a writer on it," Morrison told The Boot
, "It was kind of strange, 'cause he didn't know either that I had done it."
Allen admitted in the same interview: "I had no idea. I got an email from the other writers saying 'Urgent, urgent,' and then I read it, and it said that Matthew Morrison was going to sing the song, and I was pretty stoked about it."
