TobyMac and his wife Amanda have been together since the mid 1990s, but like all couples, their marriage can be hard work sometimes. The message of this song is one of reconciliation between husbands and wives going through tricky times. TobyMac explained: "'Hold On' is very personal. Many lines are there to encourage my wife, but I know those lines could encourage anybody in a relationship."
Ronnie Dunn wrote "Boot Scootin' Boogie" before he teamed up with Kix Brooks to form Brooks & Dunn. It was originally recorded by the country group Asleep At The Wheel, but Brooks & Dunn did it themselves when it got its own line dance.
