Chris DeStefano, Hillary Lindsey and Josh Miller wrote this forever love song. It is among just a handful of tracks on Life Changes that Thomas Rhett didn't co-write. "'Grave' was one of those songs that, when I got it in demo form, I loved the song, but I wasn't fully sure that I was going to cut the song," the singer admitted during a media listening event. "I kind of had this vision of these 10 or 12 songs already picked out in my head, and I wasn't really ready to let an outside song come in and take the spot of one that I wrote. But at the end of the day, I'm always of the mindset that the best song wins. '
He added: "Grave' came to life in the studio, and as I put my vocal on it and Ashley [Gorley] got the mixes back, it started to become my family's favorite song, my friends' favorite song."
