Songfacts®:

  • Miranda told the Associated Press's Chris Talbott that the song was inspired by her relationship with her beau, Blake Shelton. "I kind of felt that feeling come over me," she said. "That's my fiancé. That's going to be my husband. I'm going to keep him safe. I feel safe with him. So that's definitely some insight into my softer side."
  • Miranda penned this love song backstage, whilst watching Shelton perform. She explained to Reuters: "I had gone out to meet him at one of his shows and I was watching him from the side of the stage. I went to the bus for a minute, and I had on these fringy boots, and as I was walking the fringe was kind of swaying to his music. I could hear his voice in the background, and it sparked this feeling in me, and I went on the bus and wrote the song."
