Songfacts®:

  • The opening track from the self-titled major-label debut album by America's Got Talent season five winner Michael Grimm is a collaboration with Heart's Ann Wilson. Grimm told AOL Music: "I know Annie and I know Nancy [Wilson] from before, I would go out on the road and open for them. I know Nancy real well, but Anne I only met a few times - but I really wanted her to sing and she said yes and she happened to be in L.A. at the time. She came right out to the studio and she and I were looking at each other in the same booth, which is a very rare thing recording duets these days. They just don't do them like that anymore."
