This song features on the soundtrack of the Nicholas Sparks movie The Best Of Me
. Rhett told The Boot
it was actually written long before the film opportunity.
"I wrote this song called 'The Way Things Go' a few years ago, and over the past year I've gotten to be really good friends with the guy that scores a lot of Nicholas Sparks movies," he said. "So he had asked me to write a song for the soundtrack, and I pitched him a couple of the ones I had already written, and I guess he fell in love with the song. But it's really cool - this is the first time I've ever had a song in a movie."
