Is That All You Got

Album: Bullets In The Gun (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • Keith penned this tune with Scotty Emerick and Dean Dillon. Keith recalled on his website: "We wrote that about three years ago and I'd forgotten about it. But right after me and Scotty came off the USO tour I got an email from him saying, 'Hey, big T. Found this yesterday.' He didn't know it, but we were in the middle of doing the album. He was just sending it so I'd have it in my files, but it sounded like a group of songs me, Scotty and Dean had written that I'd had a #1 out of a few years ago. ["A Little Too Late."] I hadn't visited that part of my life in a while, but when I write with those guys I know what it's going to sound like. So I decided to put this one on the album. You can't go wrong with me, Scotty and Dean."
