A Country singer from the Mississippi Delta where so many Blues greats originated, Azar has developed a loyal fan base and some high-profile supporters, including Bob Seger, who had Azar open for him on his 2006-2007 tour. It was on that stop where this song took shape, and it's not about what many people assume. In our interview with Steve Azar
, he said: "Everybody goes, 'Oh, you wrote that about your wife.' And I didn't. Well, I'm sure I was thinking of her in the back of my mind somewhere. It's very dark in my area in the back of the tour bus. And I have jazz music going, I have the Food Network going, watch a little ESPN. It's very cold, and I get inspired back there. So a lot of times at sound check, I'll go out and just start writing a song, not really paying attention to it. I was in this mood, and I wasn't thinking about anything. Sort of where you're just out of your mind a little bit and you're not really focused on anything. And that line, 'Your dark hair draped across my pillow, I finally got it right,' I started messing with it a little. And me and Jason (Young, Azar's percussionist) got to the back of the bus and we wrote it, and next thing you know we're at 2 or 3 shows later on the Seger tour and we're playing it. And how we played that the first time at sound check, the first time how it all started to come together after the song was written, it's how 90% of the record was written. That was basically it, except for a little bit of the drum pattern. Other than that, that's the same thing we heard the first night, the first time we played it. So it was really borne from a sound check and just a mood that I was in. And yeah, it's working out pretty good for us."
