Album: Proud To Be Here (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • This track finds Trace celebrating the simple pleasures in life. He explained to Reuters how the song was inspired by the view from his backyard deck, which overlooks a lake and the rolling hills of Middle Tennessee. "The song is very literal, especially that first verse," he said. "Kenny Beard and Casey Beathard came up to the house a year or so ago to write, and we were sitting on the deck talking. The TV was on and some kind of depressing news came on and somebody said, 'We don't need to listen to that on a day like this.' We wrote the song in about 45 minutes."
