  • Lyrics
  • This song is about a divorced couple who every other weekend trade off the kids. The couple still wishes that they where together, and for 15 minutes they feel like a family again.
  • In the music video, Joanna García and Steve Howey, who were Cheyenne and Van Montgomery on the hit TV show Reba, play the roles as the two parents after the show had ended. >>

  • This was written by Skip Ewing and Connie Harrington. Ewing is also a singer, and duets with Reba on the single version of this song, singing from the perspective of the father. For the album, Kenny Chesney sang the father's part.
