When McGraw recorded the song, he wasn't anticipating it would be anything more than an album cut. But after they mixed the track, the coronavirus lockdown happened and it suddenly seemed right for the time. He explained to The Boot
: "For us, during all this stuff that's going on and being at home together and hanging out, there's been a lot of, sort of, nostalgia that's come along with that ... so those are the kinds of things that this song reminds me of. And then, in a bigger view, it reminds me of our humanity in a lot of ways, and how we're all connected and how we all should reach out more and connect with each other."
