Songfacts®:

  • Troy Gentry is the lead vocalist on this song about learning from one's own song lyrics and taking life at a slower pace.
  • Troy Gentry told CMT News that he initially connected with this song written by Clint Daniels and Tommy Karlas musically, then it hit home on a personal level. He explained: "When I first heard the demo, it had an old James Taylor kind of feel to it and vibe, and I got locked into the song and to the music. And then as I listened to it more, the first half of the song was reminding me of me, you know, getting older, and having a family, and raising a kid." Gentry added that the song also makes him think about the stage he's at in life and about having the freedom to be able to do what he does for a living.
