  • This orchestrated ballad was the third single released from American country singer Trace Adkins' eighth studio album, X.
  • Casey Beathard and Tim James wrote the song, which is a contemplation of the things that are important in life, especially one's family. Atkins told GAC: "Nobody knows [about the importance of family] or appreciates that more than these men and women who come home after being deployed for months and months [after serving our country]. They really realize what is truly important. This song talks about family and how they should be the top priority in your life."
