  • Lyrics
  • This Rodney Clawson and Luke Laird-penned track finds Tim McGraw dueting with his pal Kid Rock. "When I first heard the demo I knew I wanted Kid Rock to do it with me," the country star told Taste of Country. "I just felt like it was the perfect song for he and I to do. I'm a huge fan of his, I think that he's just a great, great singer."

    The song is a nostalgic one, with McGraw and Rock reminiscing on a time when Lincoln Continentals and Cadillacs were the epitome of cool.
  • McGraw didn't actually record the song in person with Kid Rock, because he was too busy at the time to schedule a visit. "I shot him a text message and said, 'Hey I got a song,'" McGraw recalled. "He said, 'send it over to me.' So I sent it to him, and a week later I got back his vocal."
