Songfacts®:

  • The third single from Country act Thompson Square's self-titled debut album, was written by the husband and wife couple with Jason Sellers and Paul Jenkins and released on May 9, 2011.
  • The retro-themed music video is a takeoff on '70s variety shows with the Thompsons portraying hosts closely resembling Sonny & Cher. "When Keifer was writing the song, 'I Got You,' it reminded us of the Sonny & Cher's 'I Got You Babe,' Shawna Thompson told Country Weekly. "We thought that if we ever got the chance to do a video on this song, it would be cool to do a sort of spoof on the whole variety-show thing." Keifer Thompson added, "We brought our video concept to Wes Edwards and he made sense of it all, plus he enhanced the idea a little further."
