After over 20 years with Curb Records and a legal battle, Tim McGraw finally left the label after a judge freed him from his contract. Curb immediately released this introspective ballad as the second single from Emotional Traffic, an album that had been shelved for several months following the dispute.
The song was written by Brian Simpson and Ashley Gorley and finds the narrator regretting his past behavior and determining to change. It was previously released as the title track of Sammy Kershaw's 2010 album.
Kimberly from Osceola Mo My son loved this song because this was him fighting with drugs and trying to be the best lawyer that he could be, he past away in 2013 and this is the song that was played at his funeral,I cry every time I hear it, thank you so much. Kimberly Hills
