This song was penned by American footballer-turned-songwriter Mike Reid ("I Can't Make You Love Me
") and by Rory Bourke, who co-wrote the #1 Charlie Rich hit "The Most Beautiful Girl." Randy Travis said he was hooked the minute he first heard it. "I remember the first time I heard him (Reid) doing the demo, which was more like a record," he recalled. "I remember listening to it, and wanting to record it right then and there. I went back and listened to it over and over, I don't know how many times. His writing is just that good."
