Songfacts®:

  • This song features vocals from Jake Owen. The country star mentioned the track back in 2014, telling Entertainment Tonight, "Adam [Young, of Owl City] wrote me an email and said that he enjoyed what I did, and asked if I'd be interested in being a part of something. It just kinda worked out."
  • The collaboration with Jake Owen found Adam Young stepping completely outside his box. "That's probably my favorite because it was so fresh for me to try something else," he admitted. "I've done acoustic tracks before but never like this."

    "I've been a big fan of Jake's for a couple of years," Young continued. "I listened to a lot of his records, and he was a gateway into the country world. We married this pop sensibility with his voice and told a story about how it feels to come home - especially after a long trip or, in our case, tour."
