  • Crow wrote this song with Al Anderson and Leslie Satcher after being inspired by Nashville legend Merle Haggard following the Kennedy Center Honors ceremony where he was honored in 2010. "After playing the Kennedy Center Honors, I came home and was thinking about what it must be like to be a songwriter from that generation," she told Billboard magazine, "and writing about what's happening around you. That was the inspiration for that."
