  • The Band Perry co-wrote this song about loss with Brad Paisley. The tune also features plenty of the Country star's guitar licks. "We wrote with him last year. We were talking with him a lot about the second album process and what he went through and what were some of his experiences," Reid Perry told The Boot, "and one thing led to another and before a soundcheck one day we pounded it out."


    "It truly is an indulgent piece of music," Kimberly Perry added. "Anything we ever wanted to do, from grandiose vocals to Brad Paisley's greatest guitar show we packed into this song, so it's a real good time."
  • The three Perry siblings were influenced by one of their favorite bands Queen, resulting in some experimental vocals on this song. "On the bridge, we literally stacked probably 10 vocals on top of each other," noted Reid Perry to The Boot. "And Neil even hits two octaves above Kimberly at one point! But we were listening to a lot of Queen at that moment. We really wanted to bring in those kind of dramatic, over-the-top vocals as well."
