This is the title track of American rock band Saving Abel's second album. Lead singer Jared Weeks explained: "The message of the song is simple - it tells a story of a soldier writing home to his mom, family, wife, and kids. Throughout the song you get the feeling of what it is like to be so far away from your home, your life, and your loved ones, but still having to soldier up and do what you came there to do. It offers the message of not giving up, not losing love, and not running away."
Saving Abel spent a week on an USO / Armed Forces Entertainment tour of the Persian Gulf, during which the band visited eight military bases, performing seven concerts for the troops in Qatar, Kuwait, and Iraq. Weeks explained the album title was the band wanting "to give something back" to the American soldiers who serve overseas. He said, "Having just returned from our USO tour of Iraq, Kuwait and Qatar, we all seemed to be on the same page when it came to naming the album. Just being out there with those men and women who do so much for us and the country we live in, we really wanted to give them something back. So for all of us, Miss America was the perfect name, for a perfect situation."
