Casey Brown and Parker Welling, Dickinson's buddies from his time at Nashville's Belmont University, subsequently became his go-to writing partners. They collaborated with the singer on his first four hit singles: "Yours
," "Blue Tacoma
," "Every Little Thing
" and this song.
"The magic never hit until I wrote with Casey and Parker," Dickerson reflected to The Boot
. "We were friends - basically family; we still are - before we were co-writers... You can't just replace that."
"Even in the writing room, you feel more comfortable, because it's like we're just hanging out, as opposed to [it feeling like], 'Oh, I'm in the room with this famous songwriter, I'm nervous they're gonna think this idea is stupid and never want to write with me again,'" he added. "Loyalty is a huge part of it."
