  • Ryan Bingham penned this letter to his child before he found out his wife, Anna, was pregnant. He explained to Rolling Stone: "Over the past couple of years, we'd been talking [about] if we wanted to have kids or not. We had it in our minds. You start thinking about, "Wow, what would I have to say to my kid if I had one?" And that was kind of how the song began. Then, a few months later, [Anna] told me she was pregnant, so it was like, all right, I got that one down."
