What I'd Give

Album: Love On The Inside (2008)

Songfacts®:

  • This steamy number was written by Sugarland's duo Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush together with Kenny Chesney's long-time lead guitarist Clayton Mitchell.
  • Unusually for a Country track, this song continues musically after the last lyric ends.
  • Nettles commented on Sugarland's website that she liked the romantic implications of this song's lyrics. The duo also agreed that if the listener isn't making out halfway into this six-minute yearning, then they aren't ever going to be!
