Asked what made the song resonate so strongly with him by The Boot
, Green replied: "When I was on tour with [Kenny] Chesney in 2007, I came home for two weeks to watch my daughter be born and be with Mama. And then I went back on the road, and I didn't come home for four months. I saw her maybe another two or three times until she was six months old."
"You come home, and you're like, 'Dang. Why am I doing this? Is this really what God intended?' It's not natural for you not to be around your kid for the first half of the first year of their life. But I didn't have a choice if I wanted to have a career doing this, being on the Chesney tour, the biggest tour in the world. The tour was bigger than U2, was bigger than the [Rolling] Stones – more people, more everything. And I had that opportunity given to me by Chesney; I had to take it. And that really was one of the things that set my career in motion."
"When you're done with that tour, and you realize that there's an infant at home that you haven't really met, you're pretty ready to get home."
