Holy wasn't first choice to record the tune. He explained to Nashville Music Scene
: " It's kind of crazy because we went into the studio to cut four songs that we had written, and the label pitched 'Love Don't Run' to me. Then it turned out, right after they gave it to me that said I couldn't cut it. They said that Ronnie Dunn has it on hold and he's cutting it. And for whatever reason, it ended up not working out for him and we ended up getting it."
