Mitchell Tenpenny admitted to The Boot
that he started crying a couple times while writing this song, especially when he came up with the line "'One day, my babies can look at me and see what he's like." Tenpenny explained this was because his mom had always grandkids, but they never got to meet him.
"But it was something I really wanted to say because, you know," he explained, "I grew up from him. I'm so much like him. And so they will see a little bit of him."
