A waltz-time lope on a Country album is very unusual, but Jennifer Nettles
and Kristian Bush of Sugarland were determined to do a song in six-eight time. In our interview with Bush
, he explained: "I was really obsessed at that time with trying to see if we could redefine ourselves, or start a new definition of ourselves as musicians. When we started this band, Jennifer put her guitar down. And I said, 'Well, why don't you find a way to pick it up?' I was really obsessed with the Faces and old Rod Stewart records, so I wanted mandolins and 12-strings - I wanted to write a song that way.
We started talking about how if you have a song in 6/8 that if you choose to do one, then you've got to punch your card, much like it's Starbucks. You can't do more than one of them, so make it good. We decided, well, this will be the song we write in 6."
