Songfacts®:

  • Amory, Mississippi, singer Trent Harmon was crowned the 15th and final winner of American Idol in a star-studded farewell show on April 7, 2016. This bluesy jam is his coronation song.
  • The track was co-written by American Idol judge Keith Urban with Nashville songwriters Dallas Davidson and Brett James. "That one just sort of fell by the wayside a little bit," Urban said of the tune. "I was focusing on the songs and the next thing I knew they called me and asked if I would be cool with Trent singing it. I was all for it."
