Charted: 48

Songfacts®:

  • This was originally recorded by Canadian country artist Paul Brandt on his 1999 album That's the Truth.
  • Vassar on his record label's website: "It reminds me of growing up back home in Virginia. It really paints a portrait of Americana. Every time I hear that second verse about giving away your daughter at her wedding it makes me tear up. In a way, the song reminds me of every family reunion or get-together we had in my family."
